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.

We don’t. I have two screaming babies because they can’t sleep for the noise. The pub couldn’t care less. The place is a joke! Common business sense says run this in the day at a weekend when more people can attend, not at night. So so many people that live here have complained because we just want children to sleep and what do the pub do- state on social media that ‘complaining is like an Olympic sport’ Nice neighbours we’ve inherited!

Nice for the pub, noise nuisance for everyone else! Boycott the Bonny!

We will keep it up thank you for your support Elaine Pierce x

We support you when we can and I am glad you have found a market in these trying times. A pub in the village is better than no pub. However the noise from the bikes is annoying, particularly when they leave their engines running and reviving them when they are not moving..

David Bull Is it socially responsible to entice vehicle drivers to a pub to consume alcohol? I know the argument will be it’s the responsibility of the individual bikers to watch their drinking and riding but organising a special night for them to do so seems irresponsible.

Enjoy the bikers night, lovely people, very friendly considering I'm not a biker, have not noticed any drink driving and its all over by a reasonable time. So glad that a hospitality business has found a way to survive in such a hard economic time!
