Did you paint any rocks during lockdown? Do you still have them?
The Parish Council are considering a project to bring the stones together to create a memorial in the centre of the village. If you are happy for them to be used in this project, please keep your stones and get in touch to let us know how many you have so we can see what we can create with them!
Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01892-823193.
TWBC confirmed it has revised its timetable for its Local Plan. This follows a substantial response to the public consultation on a Draft Local Plan last autumn, with over 8,000 individual comments. TWBC confirmed that the revised programme provides the necessary additional time to properly consider the contributions that a wide range of organisations and local people have taken the time and trouble to make before moving forward.
Therefore, TWBC has published an updated timetable for the next consultation stage of the Local Plan, which is now due to take place next March/April.
Full details are contained in the Council’s ‘Local Development Scheme, June 2020’, which is published online at www.tunbridgewells.gov.uk/LDS.
The opportunity to make representations on the revised, final draft (‘Pre-Submission’) version of the Local Plan will be widely publicised in due course, while everyone who made comments at the Draft stage will be directly notified.
Following changes in government restrictions, we have re-opened the skate ramps, multi-use games area and car park. The tennis courts were re-opened previously. Please ensure you maintain social distancing rules to stay safe.
Playgrounds and the outdoor gym remain closed.

Following the recent government announcement, Pembury Parish Council will re-open the tennis courts in Lower Green Recreation Ground for personal use only with effect from Wednesday 13 May 2020.
Users of the tennis courts are asked to comply with current guidance on using the courts. Full details of the guidance can be found on the Lawn Tennis Association website.
Please do not use the tennis courts if you have symptoms of Coronavirus or anyone you live with has symptoms.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before leaving home to go to the court (or use an alcohol gel if washing hands is not possible).
TWBC are not yet in a position to re-commence garden waste collections due to staff shortages. They want to assure residents that they will restart the service when resources allow them to do so. At the moment garden waste collections are suspended as the staff have been re-deployed to keep the core services running i.e. food waste, household waste and recycling collections.
TWBC will advise a start date as soon as they can.
In the meantime why not think about home composting. More details on this can be found on the Recycle Now and many other websites.
