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.

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and thought “WOW”? Have you ever bought or been given a telescope and found it too difficult to setup and use? 🔭

Astronomy is a fascinating and rewarding hobby, but it’s all too easy to be put off by obscure technical jargon, the enormous price of some of the equipment on sale and the sheer difficulty of knowing where to start. Here at Ashford Astronomical Society we LOVE all things space. Especially making it fun and accessible to all!

Each month we meet at Woodchurch Memorial Hall. There is a talk, a raffle, a night sky tour and some observing if the clouds stay away! There will be tea and coffee available but please bring a mug.

Entry is free for paid society members (memberships available on request) and £3 for guests. Children are welcome 🤗

⭐️ Tomorrow night! ⭐️

Telescope Workshop - Steve Walker and Ewan Vellacott return to provide practical advice on how to get the best out of your astronomical equipment. (Please note this is our ‘May’ meeting rescheduled due to hall availability)

Meeting starts at 7.30pm at Woodchurch Memorial Hall.
