The land at Beldam Haw, which was previously used as garden extensions, was retained by the District Council when the properties in Beldam Haw were passed to West Kent Housing Association.
The Parish Council is now using this land for allotments. At the November 2012 Parish Council Meeting the relevant paperwork was signed to ensure the transfer of the land to Parish Council ownership.
Parishioners have been invited to indicate if they are interested in having an allotment in the Parish Council newsletters distributed to each house in the village three times a year.
Following unfortunate delays, mainly owing to poor weather, allotmenteers finally moved onto the allotments in the summer of 2014.
There are currently a small number of vacant plots and half plots, so if you would like to become an allotmenteer, please contact the clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01959 534881.
There are seven flower beds in the Village. Grants were obtained from the Kent County Council's Member Fund for the initial set up.
The flowerbeds are sponsored by :
Our grateful thanks to all our sponsors for their contributions. Many thanks to the Cock Inn management and customers who raised £162 recently towards the upkeep of the flowerbeds in general. This was from entry fees and a raffle at one of the monthly Sunday Quizzes.
If any business or individuals would like to sponsor the two flowerbeds at Southdene and the two at Parkside, please contact the Clerk:

The flower beds are maintained by Coolings Nursery.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE PARISHIONERS WHO CUT AND TEND THE GRASS VERGES AND FLOWER BEDS.
There are three Sports Club all holding licenses with the Parish Council. Each club uses the Recreation Ground and the Pavilion which has changing rooms :
The Parish Council has purchased 2 speed indicator devices (SID’s) for Knockholt Road. One has been positioned outside Warren Court Farm as you enter the village from Knockholt, and the other at the Station Road end of the village just before you reach the Recreation Ground.
Both speed indicator devices are solar powered, so there will be no ongoing running costs. One of the SID’s has been paid for by the Parish Council, from the money which it has set aside over the past few years. The other has been paid for by a donation from our County Councillor Member’s Grant.
