Woodchurch is a Kent village, the largest civil parish in the Borough of Ashford. It is centred 6 miles (9.7 km) from the market town of Ashford and 4 miles (6 km) from the Cinque Ports town of Tenterden, in Kent, South East England. The village became firmly established in the 13th century with the erection of the large All Saints church which still boasts a 13th-century chancel. The windmill that overlooks the village from the north commands extensive views over the Walland marshes to the English Channel coast.
Woodchurch Hub is a not-for-profit organisation whose main objectives are to promote the wellbeing of Woodchurch residents and to bring together local social groups and charities within the Woodchurch area. The HUB provides community support through The HUB building six days each week and at other times by phone and email. As well as a central information helpline, in cojunction with the Tenterden Social Hub we organise the “Meals on wheels” service within Woodchurch and, in conjunction with Woodchurch Surgery and the Jean Mealham Centre we assist with transport and prescription collection.
The Parish Council meets on the 4th Thursday of each month. Please check noticeboard or website for agenda and to confirm meeting is taking place at 7.00 pm in the Memorial Hall Annexe. Anyone from the village is welcome to attend these meetings, which include an Open Forum where matters that you would like to be considered by the Council can be discussed.
