Pluckley’s Neighbourhood Plan has now been approved by the Parish Council and formally submitted to Ashford Borough Council (ABC), with its supporting documents. ABC will now review the document and publish it for a six week consultation period. After that, they will decide whether it is ready to go to an independent examiner. Following that examination, it will come back to the parish for a public referendum.

Pluckley Women’s Collective (PWC) was able to conjure up beautiful sunny weather for its August event, a family BBQ and picnic which was held on the recreation ground last Saturday. There was something for everyone including games and music and an ice cream van was in attendance. Pluckley residents were able to spend a thoroughly relaxing afternoon and enjoy delicious food courtesy of Gary Boodle, our local butcher and Helen Baird at Pluckley Farm Shop. A big thank you for their support and generosity.
Thanks are also due to the Parish Council for the loan of the Pavilion and the marquees, to Chris Housman for supplying the music, to Martin Chambers for providing an excellent BBQ and finally to the many helpers; ladies, gentlemen, children and dogs who came along on Saturday morning to help get everything ready. The biggest task was the erection of the marquees but helpers managed to follow orders at the right time so that much fun was had by all.
Finally thank you to everyone who came along and made the event such a success. Hopefully it will become an annual event.

Pluckley’s new defibrillator is now installed in a yellow box on the side wall of the village store – thanks to Sena. It is fully automated, and designed to be used by the public without any training. We hope that it won’t need to be used, but it’s reassuring to know that it’s there.
