Lynsted.com 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 complete! This site is an entirely voluntary project.

Post Christmas Scams - be wary!
There are several scams out there to catch you unawares in the post-Christmas 'fuzz'.
Reputable online retailers AND BANKS will never ask for the following in an e-mail communication:
- Your National Insurance Number
- Your bank account information, credit card number, PIN number, or credit card security code (including "updates" to any of the above)
- Your mother's maiden name or other information to identify you (such as your place of birth or your favourite pet's name)
- Your password
This is a perfect time to use your delete key! No need to be polite.
DEFINITELY do not reply. If you do, your email will be logged as "active" by the scammers and sold on to other criminals. Happy New Year!

- UPDATE: 120 homes South of the A2 (Lynsted Parish)
Determination Date extended beyond 6th January. Read Note from Swale Borough Council - SBC Planning Services Note.
- Did you comment on the Swale Borough Plan ("Bearing Fruits")?
You should have got a letter or email from Swale Borough Council and from the Planning Inspector. However, if those files went into Spam, as mine did, I have copied them (PDF links below) for your convenience.
The key point is that the review process is now firmly under way for the Inspector to judge whether Swale Borough Council has done enough to meet her earlier concerns.
