This Site


WELCOME was set up in 2005 by a local volunteer to promote the use of the internet to support local voluntary and community interests in this Parish and in neighbouring communities. Since then several groups have embraced the internet and social media to created their own web-presence. We have provided links to those sites to promote those initiatives. Of course, the job is still not yet complete! This site remains an entirely voluntary project.

You can read this short PDF copy of what has been on the mind of our Councillor, Andrew Bowles. Of particular interest is the Labour and UKIP pressure to increase housing in Faversham and the Rural Areas - where there are the fewest resources to support increased population! The real issue for developers is cost of land (including preparation of land if brownfield) - a pristine piece of land is much easier to make profits from than recovering 'brown field' sites to keep town centres alive. But then developers are not driven by sentiment!


These can be viewed as PDF downloads using this link. Decisions and services are made on your behalf - shouldn't you find out how you might be affected?

  4. Fibre progressBROADBAND: Core Fibre-optics have been laid along A2. BT, Plusnet and Talk-Talk (perhaps others) are taking orders for fibre connections. The key issue is whether your "green cabinet" has been "fibred" (FTTC - Fibre to the Cabinet).
    PlusNet (perhaps others too) charge a premium above 'normal market rate' for those of us on the Teynham 'marginal Exchange'. So, the 'headline' rates do not apply to us.
    Yet again, being 'rural' is more expensive and we are resigned to degraded services for more money! Give me strength!
    (b) If you live the same distance from the green cabinet as you do from the exchange, don't expect the "advertised speeds" - you will still have a load of old copper wire to corrupt data and slow your speed!
