Woolage Green project
The council has recently won a bid (from Viridor) to make improvements to the village green at Woolage Green. The work is in three phases. The first is to create a wildflower area at the back of the green. This has been achieved through the removal of existing turf and relaying with specialist wildflower turf. Local volunteers provided the labour and this work was completed during the weekend 14/15 November.
The next phase is to create dropped kerb access to the notice board area from the road and also to widen the entrance to Beggars Roost access. The final phase will be to create an access path to the notice board from the dropped kerb access and also to create a hard standing area around the notice board. Two picnic tables will be installed on the hard standing to the rear of the notice board. This should all be achieved in the next few weeks.
The Parish of Womenswold is situated in a typical downland landscape just off the A2 midway between Canterbury and Dover, Womenswold is one of Kent’s smaller Parishes, comprising some 120 properties housing a population of around 300 people.
The Parish is made up of three communities: Woolage Village, Womenswold Village and Woolage Green. The church – St Margaret of Antioch – is situated in Womenswold village, as is the former school which is now used as a learning opportunities centre for children with special needs. The village pub – The Two Sawyers (website) – is in Woolage Green and is, in the absence of a village hall, the social hub of the Parish. The recreation ground and children’s playground are located at Woolage Village.
