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.

Update from Woodchurch Surgery

Well said Jack👏👏

Excellent piece Dr. Jack - I'm happy to have my covid19 vaccinations, (two so far without problem), not only to help protect myself but also to protect others I may come into contact with. Edward Jenner, (the pioneer of vaccination whose work directly led to the elimination of smallpox), was a brilliant physician & scientist.

Great news on the Covid booster campaign. And what a lovely, positive tribute to the Afghan migrants. We are very blessed to have such a brilliant village surgery!

Excellent news about the boosters. Please don’t forget though that some people within the over 50’s grouping suffer anaphylaxis and so can only have the Astra Zeneca jab. Hopefully this has already been thought about and AZ boosters are available to those who need it.

When vaccination of 12-15 year olds was 'well considered' by the JCVI, they were very clear in stating that there was no medical reason for vaccinating this cohort. On that basis they refused to recommend it. That refusal to recommend has been overruled by a single individual who has strong financial ties to the pharma industry (the great & good Chris Whitty). Like the good doctor, it is not a decision that I will have to make, but if I did have 12-15 year olds, there is no way they would be being exposed to the risks associated with these injections when there are no significant benefits to them to balance those considerable risks against.

The 'interested parties' list was submitted to Openreach last week for the purposes of generating a 'no-obligation' quote for the supply of FTTP broadband to Redbrook Street. We managed to achieve a total of 42 properties, plus one or two late arrivals!
All who registered should now have received the RSNBG Newsletter number 1 by email.

Hi Bob, Nothing to do with internet but why is Redbrook St shown closed. Took the diversion from wood church road along Plurenden Road and then got blocked with a new mobile home being delivered to Pillreed. Give up after 20 mins went back to Redbrook street and nothing going on road clear. Do you know what is happening? Cheers, Colin

Please help what is going on

Should let locals know

Hi Bob we haven’t received the email yet

I notice that they’ve got road works set up at the top of Redbrook street this morning, so I suspect that it is something to do with that. There’s ongoing UK Power Networks activity, with notified power cuts for Redbrook Street on the 23rd for power re-routing purposes, so I suspect the works are in preparation for that. Shouldn’t be going on for very long I wouldn't have thought.

Dear Members

INITIAL CRIME REPORT/ALERT. CRIME REF No 46/182310/21

I have been alerted to a theft in the WOODCHURCH AREA by a Neighbourhood Watch Member

The theft concerned a Garden Tractor which was stolen from the garage of a property in
REDBROOK STREET TN26 3QT on Sunday afternoon the 19th September. Time approx 1730hrs to 1930 hrs approx.

The Garden Tractor was a HUSQVARNA TS 138 orange in clour with black wheels.

Firstly may I appeal for any information especially CCTV, CAMERA DOORBELL footage or even by total chance any DASH CAM footage please contact the police via 101 and quote the crime number above.

Secondly did anyone see the garden tractor being taken maybe on a towed trailer and at that time not realised it was a theft in progress.

Lastly this is a clear indication that thieves are active in the area and this type of machinery is vulnerable to criminals.

Please ensure sheds,garages, barns and external storage are as secure as possible at all times. Consider chaining items together and consider immobilising machines.

Thank you all for your help, support and assistance in this matter
