Local Campaigns

South & South East in Bloom

The Village Society with support from Preston Parish Council and the local community entered Preston & Elmstone in to the village category of the South & South East in Bloom awards.

This is the second year we have participated and on September 14th we were awarded a 'Silver Gilt Award' and named as outright winners. Preston & Elmstone is officially the best village in the South East of England.

Help and support from local residents, businesses and the community   to maintain green spaces and protect our environment are beneficial improvements for all who live and visit our village.

Details of progress and updates of how you can help and join in are in Preston Parish Newsletter.

Reclaim the Streets

This campaign is a long and on-going concern for many residents who are affected by speeding motorists and poorly maintained roads. We invite local residents to help reduce speeding vehicles through the village by driving at 20mph, thus slowing down trailing traffic.

We also encourage residents to 'Report a Fault' to Kent Highways - pot holes, poor road surfaces and markings, accidents, fly tipping, dangerous road conditions - all things that can effect the quality of life for our residents. To report a fault to Kent Highways, please click here.
