The Chairman and Vice-Chairman of The Parish Council met with Kent Highways on Wednesday afternoon. They discussed a number of issues but the first on the agenda was the pot holes and broken road in The Length opposite Pepper Alley. You will see the pot holes have now been ‘patched’. Kent Highways will be back next week to make permanent repairs. This will involve putting out no-parking cones opposite so that the work can be carried out safely.
