Village Pond

We are pleased to announce the work on our village pond is now complete. The gullies will capture rain  water which will be filtered through the installed filtration area. This will see the pond continually maintained at the correct level. Excess water will flow away via the overflow drain.

We kindly ask visitors to keep two metres from the ponds edge to allow the ground to rejuvenate.

Bearsted Fireworks Display

Bearsted Fireworks Display – Elizabeth Harvey Field
We would like to inform residents that sadly Bearsted Fireworks display will not take place this November.
The decision did not come easily and it is with regret that Bearsted Parish Council have decided to cancel this very popular event due to the current Covid-19 Government guidelines.
