Temporary Road Closure – Redwings Lane


KCC has informed us that Redwings Lane, Pembury will be closed from 20 November 2018 for up to 4 days

The road will be closed between Old Church Road and The Waterworks Switching Station. The alternative route is via Old Church Road, A228 Pembury Northern By-Pass, Redwings Lane and vice versa.

The closure is to enable a new electric supply to be carried out by UK Power Networks.

Remembrance Day Service

This year’s parade is starting from the Lower Green Recreation Ground car park at 10:15am and the Choir of Kent College will be singing specially selected songs by the War Memorial from 10:15am until the start of the service.

The service is due to start at the War Memorial in Hastings Road at 10:30am.  Please note that the service will be held outside this year. All welcome to attend. 

The newly refurbished war memorial plaques, with new names and corrected spellings, will be unveiled and dedicated at the beginning of the Service of Remembrance by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Kent, Lord Colgrain.

Road closures will be in place from 10am along Lower Green Road from the Recreation Ground to the High Street until the end of the parade at 10:30am.  Hastings Road will also be closed by the War Memorial from 10am to 11:45am.

We are also planning a Poppy Drop from a 1930s Tiger Moth plane (weather permitting) over the centre of Pembury.
