  • The planter at the Recreation Ground looks really good. Many thanks....for constructing and positioning it. I would also like to give my appreciation to MCG for funding this planter which I hope will be an asset to the Recreation Ground for the benefit of the Maresfield Residents and all who use the sporting facilities there.

  • Keep up all the good work you and the group do for keeping Maresfield such a nice place to live.

  • Thanks to the Footpath Group for your ​excellent work in reinstating the safety barrier between the Hall Car Park and the track to the village. This remedies a long standing eyesore and your work will be greatly appreciated by villagers using the track.

  • Thank you for taking the concerns about the fence to the highways department.

  • .....thank you all so very much [for restoring the graveyard gate], it looks fabulous, a real upgrade.

  • I have had a phone call from an MCG member, congratulating us on the progress made with regard to the Victorian Lamps.  He said he moved into the village in 1999 and that this was being spoken about as far back as then! He also praised us generally and thought we were doing an excellent job.

  • The Parish Council...thanks the Maresfield Footpaths Group for the fantastic work carried out repairing and repainting five of the fingerposts in our Parish. These iconic direction signs really do look fantastic now you have worked your magic! The Council and Parishioners alike acknowledge that we are lucky to have volunteers such as yourselves willing to help maintain and improve the villages where we live.

  • Keep up the good work! Your group efforts are clearly visible and much appreciated.

  • The lanes are an asset to residents, the community and visitors and are part of the rural setting of Maresfield. 
    The Conservation Society work hard to protect and enhance this character.........

  • I have just been on a walk & found that 2 styles leading off of Nursery Lane have been lowered & modified. I would like to say thank you to whoever is responsible, as I have always found them quite high to get my creaky old hips over. It's very much appreciated.

(Anne Barnett, MCG member)

  • I have just started to walk in your area and am very grateful for the work you have done waymarking and building things on the ROW.  It makes it much more enjoyable for someone unfamiliar with the area - it is easy to get lost and dispirited in the gloom and woods.
