There is now a wooden cross on the Green which will be bare all through this coming week, Holy Week, but on Easter Day it will be covered with netting so that anyone who would like to can place flowers, prayers or messages on the cross. They can be in memory of a loved one who has died, a prayer, a thanksgiving or simply placed in celebration of the resurrection.
You will need to observe social distancing and may like to wear gloves to place your flowers / prayers / messages and sanitize your hands before and after.
As we go through this coronavirus emergency more than ever we need to be reminded there is no darkness that God, in the end, cannot turn to good. Please do come anytime during Easter Day and help make our cross a symbol of resurrection and new life.

Respiratory/breathing problems can be made worse by breathing in smoke. Respiratory problems are one of the possible symptoms of Coronavirus. Please be a good neighbour and wait until this crisis has passed before having a bonfire.

Neighbourhood Area Designation – Hernhill Parish Council
Hernhill Parish Council has made an application to Swale Borough Council to designate a neighbourhood area. This is in area within which a neighbourhood plan can be prepared.
Neighbourhood plans give communities power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. The area applied for is the same as the Parish boundary, and can be viewed on a map, along with a letter for the reasons for the application, on Swale Borough Council’s website here:
Swale Borough Council is seeking your views on the suitability of the proposed area to be designated as a neighbourhood area. If you have any comments, you can submit these via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
Comments must be received by midday on Monday 16 March 2020, after which a decision will be made and published on Swale Borough Council’s website. If you have any questions, please contact 01795 417395 or email@example.com.
The Parish Council in due course will be looking for parishioners who are interested in contributing to and shaping the Neighbourhood Plan. More information will follow in the coming months

This Order restricts the weight of goods vehicles to 7.5 Tonnes through The Street Boughton, Staplestreet Road and Stockers Hill.
The weight restriction does NOT apply to “vehicles for the purposes of agriculture” – exemptions section 3 (f).
This should make our lives much easier! Thanks go to Jeff Tutt, Alastair Gould and all those who have campaigned for this restriction.
