Heart of the Community Awards 2012

The grade II listed Rusthall war monument is in need of our help. To clean, restore and re-etch the fading names would cost £2000.

Clive Roberts has donated all the profits from his book ‘Rusthall’s Fallen’ towards this worthy cause and any small award would go a long way towards honouring a generation who  gave everything towards the life we now enjoy.

Heart of the Community is an opportunity to win a share of £10,000 so please vote for this worthwhile venture. Information on how to cast your vote can be found here.

Fire station update from Jenny Blackburn

The Fire Station on Lower Green Road was closed in February 2012.  Under the new Localism Act Rusthall Parish Council made a bid to acquire this asset for the benefit of the village.  The building and land were then offered by Kent Fire & Rescue Service to the parish council for £100,000.00 which we accepted.  There will be a covenant that will restrict the use of the building for the community forever. Read more…
