Winter is here, and so are the potholes. Report a pothole - and any other highways issues you spot - at Report a problem on a road or pavement - Kent County Council.
Langton Pavilion Community Hub
We are delighted to announce that at Full Council on Monday 8th January, Parish Councillors voted in favour of the establishment of Langton Pavilion Community Hub within Langton Green Pavilion. This new hub will open on 16th January, demonstrating our commitment to fostering a supportive and vibrant community space for all to enjoy.
Langton Pavilion Community Hub is a Community Interest Company which will be managed by Langton Green Village Society.
The Community Hub will incorporate Emma Howden’s Pavilion Café to provide a welcoming and safe environment, offering excellent heartwarming sustenance that can be enjoyed by all those taking part in the activities and initiatives that will flourish in this space.
In addition, a collaboration with Thrive Langton (Registered Charity No. 1200068) will see it running many of its existing and new events to support and nurture well-being and emotional health.
Langton Green Community Sports Association will be continuing its valuable sporting activities.
Together, we anticipate a positive future and look forward to seeing the impact this hub will make in bringing our community together. We are all ready to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead, working together to achieve success.
