Some of our footpaths group members were involved in the planting of brand new oak trees at the recreation ground.

They also helped in the replacement of the picnic bench in the play area of the recreation ground. The picnic bench installed earlier this year was unfortunately vandalised. With help from Maresfield Parish Council funds we were able to purchase another picnic table and seat the bench with sturdier ground fastenings.

Planters installed round the village during May 2016.

The old white posts that used to be around the church wall on the high street were badly in need of replacement.

In June 2017 they were replaced with new and more modern posts.  

Our footpaths group, headed up by John Smith go out every Wednesday to help clear up the footpaths in and around the village.

The School Hill cemetary project took place back in summer of 2016. This involved the removal of 2 tree stumps and roots. The wall in the cemetary was then rebuilt.
