This scheme was set up to give official recognition of members of the public who make significant contributions to their communities. The scheme is supported by the High Sheriff of Kent, the Chairman of Kent County Council and the Mayor of Medway.

Please join us on Thursday 5 July at 7pm in the Village Hall where the Parish Council will be presenting the late Trevor Ledamun’s wife with this award for all of his services to the village.

Drinks and nibbles will be served. A full Parish Council meeting will be held after this event at 7.45pm.

Partnership working with Trottiscliffe Church of England Primary School

Trottiscliffe School Community Farm is being established with the assistance of the Parish Council who will be leasing them the land (2.6 acres off Green Lane).

The school intends to create a community asset that will also enable the pupils to learn more about where their food comes from and associated conservation matters. The school is preparing a ‘land-based’ curriculum to provide access to leaning based around the farm.  They already have on order, four micropigs which will be petting animals for the children.  In addition, twelve chickens will go onto the farm once a pen is ready for them. A volunteer has offered to provide some lambs during May.

The school intend to have Open Days.  Members of the local community will be able to come along to see what is happening and there are lots of opportunities for people to volunteer.  If you would like to volunteer your help please contact Dave Urmston on: wyewoodcottage@gmail.com

Tree Warden

Trottiscliffe are very lucky to have the voluntary services of a tree warden.

Neil Moulton is very happy to provide advice on trees in the village and has given invaluable help to the Parish Council.

Neil has organised and carried out two tree walks in the village which were very well attended and provides regular blogs on this website (address to be advised).
