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.

There’s some info on the Woodchurch community page - I think you mY just have to leave earlier or later

Probably depends on which end you live, but please be aware of any runners around you. For any queries on the best time to leave phone the number on the road closure sign

Lower Road will be open but you won't be able to get car out onto Front Road so park it in a strategic spot.

Chris, I suggest you park your car temporarily down The Green. It’s only Front Road that is closed between 10.00 & 13.00 from Lower Road junction up to Redbrook Street, according to Kent Highways website.

Just a final reminder that Sunday morning Front Road is closed all the way up to the ✖️roads at Redbrook Street. 8:30am - 11:30am.

If you live on Front road and need to get away in the morning by vehicle, please note the race starts at 9:30am. The road will be re-opened as soon as possible.

Starting on the green and heading down Lower Road to the bottom of Front Road, 300 runners will then make their way up Front Road, through the village for the first section of the 10&5 mile races ….see the route below.

If you’re not running, and have nothing better to do, enjoy giving the runners a warm welcome and encouragement. Lots of cakes, refreshments, burgers and more will be on sale on the green.

Much looking forward to it, thank you to all those that have volunteered for marshalling, and those hosting stalls of refreshments AND GOOD LUCK RUNNERS ! 🏃🏼‍♀️💫📣🏃🏼‍♂️💥🍰🏃🏾‍♀️

Will Redbrook Street remain open, if approaching from Shirkoak?

Hope so .... I need to leave my house on redbrook Street about 10.00am . Pretty sure we will be "allowed" out , difference between traffic and access to your home 😉 Good luck to all the runners .... looks like the weather will be on your side 💪

Not totally sure in which direction they will be running, but anti-clockwise outside of Woodchurch on the above map it looks like the route is up Front Road & Bethersden Road, left at the Shirkoak crossroads into Redbrook Street, continue up and turn left into Frogshole, then left into Susan's Hill and back into Woodchurch, so just the Woodchurch half of Redbrook Street should be involved. Reverse directions if clockwise... Should be quite a sight! Just don't miss the famous invisible Frogshole road sign if you're going anticlockwise..

Wer'e with you all the way.

Yep brilliant news for our lovely village

Fantastic 🎉👏

Excellent 1st meeting last night, lots of useful suggestions and offers of help. If you can help in any way please do join us at the next meeting 18th Nov. 6.30 pm. at the Jean Mealham Pop-in-Centre, Lower Rd. Woodchurch.

I was hoping to make it along last night but the day ran away with me. I have put 18th Nov in the diary and hopefully will be able to make it along to that meeting!

I'm sure Hobbs Parker Estate Agents would be pleased to put up lots of advertising boards if that would help. Just let me know.

Sounds like it might have been left in the roof of a car

Can you get into photos/camera without password? Pics may give a clue?
