We will update you when we have more information. If you would like to report any blocked drains or problem areas to the Parish Council for inclusion in the list of sites to be discussed with KCC, please contact the Clerk by email at Louise.leighclerk@hotmail.com.  Please ensure that you give full details of the problem including the exact location.

Potholes 

The recent heavy rains has caused havoc with our road network, and there are many potholes. Please either report these potholes to the Clerk, or go online at www.kent.gov.uk and report the fault on the interactive map.
