Woodchurch is a Kent village, the largest civil parish in the Borough of Ashford. It is centred 6 miles (9.7 km) from the market town of Ashford and 4 miles (6 km) from the Cinque Ports town of Tenterden, in Kent, South East England. The village became firmly established in the 13th century with the erection of the large All Saints church which still boasts a 13th-century chancel. The windmill that overlooks the village from the north commands extensive views over the Walland marshes to the English Channel coast.

Woodchurch Hub is a not-for-profit organisation that is supported by Woodchurch Parish Council, whose main objectives are to promote the wellbeing of Woodchurch residents and to bring together local social groups, charities and local businesses within the Woodchurch area. We encourage “think-local-buy-local” and work towards ensuring our rural community continues to thrive. More is achieved by working together.

The Parish Council meets on the 4th Thursday of each month. Please check noticeboard or website for agenda and to confirm meeting is taking place at 7.00 pm in the Memorial Hall Annexe. Anyone from the village is welcome to attend these meetings, which include an Open Forum where matters that you would like to be considered by the Council can be discussed.

Dear Readers
You will recall I posted that there would be action taken over a recent week on Anti Social Behaviour which covers a whole range of subjects.
It can cause such distress and upset and can leave a person or family feeling very alone and isolated even in total despair.The behaviour is often carried out by ignorant individuals who just blight lives with their thoughtless actions and conduct.
I also know that issues like escooters are causing concern among residents and questions are being asked of local councils and councillors of the way forward with this issue working with police colleagues.
The following post shows action right across the county and districts and is there to demonstrate actions taken.

Remember the police want all Anti Social Behaviour reported so problems can be identified.
Use 101 0r report online
Thank you
