The Hoath Village Singers
Singing relieves stress, stimulates the brain, is very relaxing and is great fun –
so come and join us!
We enjoy group singing and good company.
Meeting Wednesday evenings 7.30 – 9.30pm, giving vent to our lungs singing pop, gospel, standards and songs from the shows. Doing our best to stay in tune while guided patiently by someone who understands music.
Great fun, great company, it really is an ideasl way to relax. Tea, coffee, biscuits, a giggle, a song, a chat…what could be better?!
Go on, give it a try.

Dog owners and walkers in Hoath
There have been a number of reports of people failing to clean up after their dogs. To have dogs fouling the streets is unpleasant, unhygienic and unlawful. Please have some consideration for your neighbours and clean up after your dog.

Hoath Village News – Road problems
If you notice a problem with the roads there are a number of ways you can report it:
check out the website www.fixmystreet.com – here you can report road repairs so that it can be reported to the relevant authority .
You can also report matters online at www.kent.gov.uk/highways or by calling 08458 247 800.
In addition, the Parish Clerk Guy Foster will take up problems which are raised at Parish Council meetings. Please email copies of any matters you report to him at firstname.lastname@example.org. But it is generally much more effective if you report the problem yourself – it’s quicker and you will be able to supply the most accurate location deatails which otherwise might get “lost in translation”.
