Comments:We have provided the War Memorial, it is up to the people what sort of ceremony develops there, not for us to decree. But it was felt important to start something, and 10am leaves time for people to get to their respective church services. Happy to hear suggestions. And it is a secular memorial, to commemorate every one who gave their lives, not just members of any specific religion

Comments:Secret Squirrel : At Hurst Wood, stump tailed squirrels are usually boys that were a little too amorous. If the girls aren't ready to mate, they will often chase the boys away and may bite their tails or scratch their ears. Some are wondering how your life has differed on Planet Zog. Is there any chance that you might be a little less secretive about this? Mike might agree to you having a Planet Zog Section, here at BG News. That would be great - can't wait.

Comments:War memorial . After many years The long over due Memorial has finally been built, Not in the best of places in my view. But I respect the majority's decision as we all had a chance to vote on this site. Now what puzzles me is why hold a wreath laying ceremony at 1000Am or 10.00 hrs with a few ex Soldiers /Airmen/and the Royal Navy reps and a few councilors thrown in for good measure. Why or where were the local Cubs, Scouts, Girl, guides, ACF ? Puzzles me why the local sky pilot (priest } can not get together with the powers that be and get their act together and have a proper church parade

From Ian's History of BG Photo Archive : There is to my mind a somewhat amusing cutting (or two?) about how John was proposed for membership of BG Parish Council but the seat went to the Bank Manager's wife, for little reason other than that she had support from a certain quarter and was the said person's wife. In terms of knowing the nuts and bolts of Council work John would have been streets ahead of anyone else. Before your time Mike, but do you recollect hearing of this?

Comments:Got to agree with the sentiments, Kenny. It isn't really anything to do with "social class", it's about parents caring and giving their kids time and love, and that don't cost nuthin. Social class can bring money problems, especially under the present Government, and the stress of surviving that takes parent's minds off the real issues. And the other big issue is "my boy wouldn't do that, he's an angel"

Comments:Dear Fred Anonymous, Your unrequited love affair with Supermike has got to stop! It's doing you no good. So sad to see a supposedly grown man suffer from this sort of mental disorientation. Take it from me, his beauty was only ever skin deep. If all else fails we may have to call in Nurse Ratched to administer some stronger medicine.

Firstly, the issues where I attack the real Autocrats at TMBC or the old Parish Council are issues that I pick up from members of the public, If you know me as well as you claim you know I can't walk 30ft in the High St without being asked for help or advice. That is far nearer to true democracy than the others. As for your allegation that I am being kept by the People of Borough Green, just go back and check the historic records of expense claims by BH and SM. Its all there on the TMBC website, unless they have now had it removed. So, when people vote for me to go, I will, until then you are a minority of perhaps 3. And I will go happy in the knowledge that I have achieved stuff that benefits the people of BG, carping twits cannot take that away from me. Look around you Ozymandias !!

This follows the offensive letter you wrote and left on their cars. I would say there's more than ten of them. Yet, you claim not to behave like an autocrat. That is only one of the reasons why people now view you as one and it is your own doing.

The way councils have always operated in this country is in a civilised manner, there is a vote. You lost. But every time you lose, you indulge in vicious personal attacks on people. And I can tell you this - an awful lot of people are sick to the back teeth of it all. Do us all a favour and accept defeat like a man. Or go.

Comments:Dear Mike, I was horrified to read of the case you reported on Facebook as follows. 'Mike Taylor' 'Interesting Update re Hooligans and Vandals on Bikes. An older woman was blocked from crossing the railway footbridge by 3 of them, she pushed one out of the way, the Police swoop in and arrest HER for assault. If that is the standard of Policing we can expect we are all doomed. Our only hope is that responsible parents reading this keep their kids off the streets, out of the clutches of these gangs, before a really serious crime happens, and the Police are forced to take some action. Kids who are not inherently bad tend to get caught up in the excitement of it all, but it is always them who end up in Juvenile Detention, not the bad ones that egg them on.' Did this happen in Borough Green? If so could you demonstrate your usual public spirit as Parish Council Chairman by helping us fight this injustice on behalf of the lady concerned? If it happened elsewhere could you please furn

TMBC is autocratic, where the way to vote is passed down to councillors, and a Cabinet decision is unchallengeable. In BG, the Chairman can be removed at any meeting by a majority vote, and any group of 10 residents can call a Parish Poll at anytime, which is now binding on the PC. Now counting to 10 on my pinkies - Sue Murray, Barry Hughes, Steve Perry, Nurse Ratched, Anon George, Felicity Potts, that's only 6, and only 3 registered voters, Sorry Folks, do better next time.

Comments:So Supermike believes he was performing a public duty for Borough Green by blocking the Headmaster's car at Wrotham School because he claims Wrotham School misappropriated £8,000. Has this claim been substantiated and was his action endorsed in advance by a unanimous Council vote? Perhaps in addition to the £5,000 he claims per annum the Council should supply Supermike with a flashing blue light to fix on his self-publicising gritter van when he embarks on his public spirited escapades.

But we must remember these people are actual criminals, who have used their status with a corrupt leadership at TMBC to avoid penalties for those crimes, crimes that hurt Borough Green deeply. Now if the malcontents have any genuine reasons to support what BH and SM did to BG, let us hear it. I like Borough Green more or less as it is, I don't want it to be the huge urban area that they planned.

I have no respect for any comment made that does not have a genuine name and profile to go with it.

There will always be a few malcontents like you, and the glory of democracy is that we allow you to survive and flourish. So your diatribes only serve to strengthen the system. If you think you have enough followers - get rid of me. I won't stay if I'm not wanted.

What is the point to you attending the meeting when you were unable to vote. Causing disruption and unnecessary scenes in schools and on building sites stopping people going about their daily lives. How can you represent Borough Green when you have been censured, rendered impotent and can't vote for us? You have let the side down. So quit with the ad hominems, they have become tedious and only serve to turn people against you. I've heard the rumblings.

During October 1889,an exhibition of touring fleas at the Chequers public house, Crouch caused great mirth and amusement and attracted many inquisitive folk from surrounding hamlets. The talented and highly respectable trained and educated troupe of fleas walked tight ropes, rode tricycles, pulled timber wagons and performed many other marvelous feats. I'm feeling a bit itchy.

BGPC has provided a youth club, Potters Mede pavilion and sportsground, a skatepark, we fund foodbanks, the elderly luncheon club and foot clinic, the war memorial, expanding public open spaces, and are even fighting on behalf the new residents at Hazelbourne. Fair criticism is most welcome, anonymous and personal sniping is not. And to prove the power of my mighty mouse, read Col P's last post.

I thought I had the wrong day when I walked into the service, it was not dissimilar to the Rock & Roll Club held at the same venue. There was a thought provoking sermon on churches, which means an assembly of people. Churches are about people, not buildings, which are just bricks and mortar, that is all. A very friendly congregation who gave me a warm welcome, but I prefer the more traditional hymns at The Good Shepherd, such as Rock of Ages. One of my favourite preachers, Charles Spurgeon 1834-1892, said: "A lie travels all the way round the world before the truth puts its shoes on". He was right. Micky T lives down under where quite a few lies have reached him.

Even though he supposedly boosted morale during our darkest moments, he was unceremoniously booted from power in 1945.

Comments:Ha, ha, ha, what razor sharp wit you have Mr. T. I can assure you there's no marijuana on sale at Sainsbury! But there was at the Rock pub before it was demolished. A Churchillian quote: 'Never in the field of human inebriation has an Alehouse been so missed by so few'. I must say, I don't get Councillor Clark Kent's obsession with that Den of Iniquity. In my youth I was ever thirsty but I stopped drinking there when it started going downhill fast. Out of the four pubs in Borough Green it had a reputation as the seediest. The goings on gave it a bad name. It was known for DRUG DEALING, patronised by the underworld where they met for their regular fix. It is common knowledge and I recently heard it again through the village grapevine. If your local Superhero wants BG to have a history he will have to do better than that. "Remembering the Rock Tavern"? I'd rather forget it.

Comments:Einstein plagiarized the work of several notable scientists in his 1905 papers on special relativity and E = MC squared yet the physics community never bothered to set the record straight until over half a century later. We can now say with certainty that Einstein did not originate the concept of matter being transformed into energy and vice versa. It dates back at least to Sir Isaac Newton (1704). Einstein's special relativity theory was known in some circles as the relativity theory of Poincaré and Lorentz, he also copied key equations from fellow physicist David Hilbert. Brown (1967) said that the relativity theory arose from Poincare in 1900. Einstein, with his training as a Patent Clerk, more than anyone should have recognized the need to cite references in his article on special relativity.

Comments:Colonel : One time I had a buddy in BG who was into wrestling big time. He used to train on Wall's ice cream, and was known as "The Spencer's Cottages, 16 stone scissor-kick specialist." Apparently, Sainsbury's are considering importing frozen dingo burgers. If he'd had the benefit of Sainsbury's specials in those days, he would probably have become known as the 20 stone scissor-kick specialist. He would have been awesome, and admired almost as much as Supermike is now - if that were at all possible. Don't wear out your carpet, while rocking the night away. burp!

There he is in the morning, on my screen. Tell you what Micky, if you can't make it here for a reunion with Councillor Clark Kent to console him over the loss of his local boozer, perhaps you could invite him there. You could take him on a day trip to Ayers Rock for a picnic. I'm sure there's nowhere in Aussieland he'd rather go. Perhaps he'll come face to face with a dingo!

Comments:Greetings Micky. I should tell you that Mouliere (another idol) is a nom de plume. It's surprising you weren't familiar with his most famous quote. While you're looking things up, find out what he had to say about esteem being reduced to nothing. So it's odd you hold our local Superman in such high esteem. Hey, next time you jet over you could meet up with him for a beer in the Rock. While you're reminiscing, he might be able to tell you why the owners removed the roof, then you could cool yourself down with a Fosters Australian Lager Beer. There was once a picture in that pub of the Queen's father, George VI, on the wall. He didn't go by his real name either.

Used to see Superman at the Rex Cinema, BG, on Saturday mornings. Mike does have a build, and glasses, a little like Clark Kent! Saw 'T2 : Trainspotting' yesterday - no evidence of Haagan Dazs or rock cakes; no "yum yum" heard; not even the consumption of their favourite dessert, fried Mars bars, was observed. But it's difficult to tell if their diets are getting more 'healthy' or unhealthy!

Not sure about a link between Wm. and Maria Mercer and Steve's cousin, David Mercer.

One of the reasons the country is in such a mess today is that too many ordinary people defeat themselves by saying "there is nothing we can do".

Comments:Quite a character from the past was known as 'Bob Dog.' He had been employed by Curtis & Caine/F.P.Caine Ltd. for a while, and I heard older workers speak about him. He used to run head first into the side of a moving company lorry which was being driven by George 'Bandy' Fuller. Also head first into brick walls - one of his party tricks was to throw a brick into the air, and then head it. Some said that he was thus nicknamed, because he could catch a rabbit with his bare hands. His real name was Frank Hooker, and he lived in Addington. He played football for a few teams in the area - including while in his fifties, Ryarsh United. With the laws of the game preventing him from taking a hod load of bricks onto the pitch, he turned cartwheels during the game.

I have been told decisively by my Jackie, born and bred BGer, that Windy Knob is the hill by Bellows Lane on the Ightham footpath. Crowhill Knob was just called The Knob, but I stuck the Crowhill bit on because its real historic name was Crow Hill, hence the estate name. Incidentally, John Osborne has found a postcard of the "new houses" at Crowhill, with rolling field behind. Will put on site when I can.

I can't seem to recall being asked my view if I wanted an extra 3,500 homes, plus amenities, in the village. I am strongly opposed to the development, and see it as greedy opportunist landowners with their snouts in the trough. Obviously they don't have to live here. I want to see a Borough Green by-pass, but not at any cost. My fiance and I have already decided if this monsterous development gets the go-ahead, we will be leaving the area. If I want to live in a concrete jungle, I would have moved to London. What will be done to protect the residents of Borough Green from this situation? I have taken the 'Borough Green Gardens' (Gardens? Ha! It won't be once the concrete goes down.) survey, so have expressed my views in the strongest possible terms.

High order means health. Touch the trees and tell them I'm thinking about them.

Comments:One reason for the number of pupils in that 1949-50 class. It included all of the 'teacher's pets' that passed the 11-plus exam, and attended grammar schools the following school year. More than several of those, had transferred from Wrotham Primary School. For locals in that class who were not considered 'Grammar School material', it would not have been a good year.

Comments:I don't see Campbell Higgins and John Carruthers questions being answered at Ian's website. An interesting survey would be to find out how much living memory there is in BG. There are a lot of surnames that I do not recognise now. Perhaps that influences things somewhat. But to use that as an excuse is stretching it a bit much, I should think. I'm sure quite a few viewers see the names of relations, friends, acquaintances, etc., mentioned - then just move on to something else. Well mate, nowadays, I guess 'that's just the way it is'.

And a barrage balloon in a cornfield at Claygate Cross. Les Goodall from Bristol was posted to the Basted venue that I mentioned. He later married Joan Gunner of Claygate Cross, and ran her father's farm. This is a long shot in case Sam and Les had known one another. And yourself and/or Jackie are aware of this.

A lot of newcomers don't realise the impact of quarrying on BG, they see these pretty wooded hills, and don't realise they are quarry waste. Thong Lane bridge now gone, our last surviving bit of heritage, but managed to salvage a length of the old tramway rail, to be cut up into souvenirs. I must admit I haven't done the site counts the past month or so, been very busy, normally run 100-150 a day each, so looks like a good increase- probably TMBC looking for evidence !! I do remember "Two-Way Stretch", and Lionel Jeffries saying "what's wrong, frightened of a little bang?", just before the cliff fell on him.

Comments:The last time that I saw 3 BG quarry workers : Ron Woodger, Tom Merritt from Claygate Cross [next door to Alan Webb], and Stephen Russell from Western Rd. - was on a Sat. night, late summer 1966. I hardly got to speak to them - they were in the public bar, and I was in the saloon on a date. Tom's wife Rose, was serving me. You may remember seeing Stephen's Dad driving his truck, to and from the vicinity of Basted House, where he market gardened. A good customer of his would have been his Mum. She ran a greengrocery shop at the foot of Western Rd., opposite the Red Lion. I believe that the building was eventually 'written off/damaged beyond repair', following a few crashes of careless A25 drivers into same? Oh! and the pub where I last saw those quarrymen, was the Chequers - in jolly old Crouch.

At Ian's BG Photos website : For the 1956 building of the Recreation Ground, War Memorial Sports Pavilion, Dilla is mentioned in the 'shortlist' (by Frank) to represent all 62 volunteers. In one of the photos, I was quite impressed to see 17 years old Brian Summers - of Hill View, digging away at the bank. Campbell was living a door or 2, from Pat Moorcroft, in Sevenoaks Rd. [not Councillor Pat Moorecroft apparently, but similar age and looks]. Re : Campbell's Christian name - Ann, his Mum, was Scottish.

The Higgins I knew are Janet, still around in BG, and Fred "Prungy" Higgins, a quarry worker who was a bit crippled, allegedly from playing football barefoot in his younger days. Used to go to work walking his bike using it as a zimmer. He drove a stock lorry and stayed in the cab all day. Famous event when he went under Mill Lane Bridge with the body up at speed, and got the cab reared up in the air against the bridge. He couldn't climb down, and it took the lads several hours to extricate him, with the truck stabilised with two loading shovels.

The surname of David 'Harris' was Green. Ted Dobson was the father of Tony; do you know if Councillor Cliff is related to them? That is a very good photo of Jackie and Shirley. Actually, Jackie looks like a mixture of some Garretts and Ashbys. Is Shirley related to 'Tich' Bowman, Arthur 'Moe' Tebb, or Robert Tebb? If 'Moe', ask him if he remembers going to that coffee bar in Riverhead for 2 years. If Robert, if he remembers killing my fish from Long Pond with a knife. I'm still grieving.

Windy Knob is the hill on the old footpath to Ightham, and sorry to disappoint the conspiracy theory, but it was named that long before the new houses were built at Staleys Rd.

Comments:Hi Micky. Jackie's Dad was Jack, married Tess (Cicely) Perkins, who lived at Orchard House at the time. The marriage broke up when she contracted TB and was sent to Northampton. Jackie was bought up from 6 months by her Aunt Bess and Uncle Sam Stebbings. Sam came from Attleborough in Norfolk and met Bess Garrett when he was posted to Basted on Ack-Ack and searchlights. Jackie always called Bess her Mum. Years later when we got engaged, we had to track Tess down because Jack wouldn't give us permission to get married, and Bess wasn't Jackie's legal guardian. Jackie and Tess got on well, but Tess never took over Jackie's love for Bess as her "Mum".

The Counts always impress me - but always surprised I get so few comments, excepting yourself, of course. We did find out that Mary was in service at a big house in Crouch Lane. We do have a stonemason, Don Sheppard from Chiddingstone - does a lot of local cemetery memorials,The design of the War Memorial grew from some artists impressions, a guy called Ramon Higgs, a Legion friend of Ray Chopping. We have tried to incorporate local history into the memorial as well. A-Z was a complete stitch-up by crooked developers and a cowardly Borough Council. They only have to commit to locals for affordable housing, so they will be importing more commuters - what these people never realise that by piling everyone into the southeast, they destroy what made us special in the first place. I am glad I am not on the road anymore I knew Frank Davies well, and am still in touch with his family in BG. Jackie remembers him from the Cinema, but I was a newcomer in the 60s, just as the Rex was closing down. And I can confirm that Mike Gear is really Mike Gear, and quite unique.The Coronation Oak consultation was kosher - no point doing it any other way, I can posy all the figures (in fact I think I did at the time).

Comments:I started to question a few as to whether Mike Gear had got his (internet?) name from Mike McGear. I was then informed that 'Gear' is not an uncommon surname in West Kent. And that during the 50s, Bernard Gear had raced with 'Squeak' Gosden (from Crow Hill) and Alan Fuller (Claygate Cross) for Sevenoaks Wheelers Cycling Club. Now I'm wondering if Mike is related to Bernard!

Comments:When Sue’sbury’s opens it will do well for a short time because people will want to “nose” around it but living in Borough Green and actually talking to people here the general consensus is that this place is not wanted. We have the COOP just around the corner which is more than adequate for the needs of the villagers so why have we lost a very good pub and gained an unwanted shop? Did TMBC completely ignore the wishes of the people of Borough Green; I think they did, once again. It is some consolation that we have Mike Taylor in our corner but surely there is a limit to the punishment he can take; just lately he has been well and truly “in the wars” and some of the local newspaper reporters must have done their training with the Sun.

Comments:Hi Rikki, that is a surprising attitude, you don't work for Sainsbury, do you? I suggest you look at what Nisa, Loco and Co-op actually stock before you suggest they need replacing by Sainsbury - who sell exactly the same range. The survey we carried out showed 3-4 people out of thousands who wanted it, so you are a very small minority. Local produce is mainly grain and rapeseed, (and sand). We aren't against progress that adds something to the village, but unfortunately progress by corporations always means destruction of something.

If the appetite from the community is there we can go another route (as Underiver did) and go private: http://www.gigaclear.com/ There has to be sufficient interest to make it viable though. What are your thoughts around this? I have no idea whether it is just me being impatient with my broadband or if other people are after faster speeds as well.

It belongs to the Bangay family and I have no wish to seek permission to use one of our own images, nor to pay a fee to do so. Nor do I think it lawful that somebody can pass off somebody else's image as their own and seek to gain from it. It goes against inteelectual property rights. While this is being clarified I will keep content off line. The entire archive has copyright asserted and is only to be used on non-profit sites. That does exclude the Chronicle. The Mail too quoted chunks without permission, though of course it helps to understand the background of this issue.

To undo that is complex. It requires clear benefits to be indetified. Bangays Way has merits in that it makes the women in his life and other family members enter the frame. Without support from Edna and Freda. Dad would have achieved so much less. From a feminist persective Bangays Way might seem ideal. Frank Bangay Way makes it clearer who it is about. I am sorry that BG has received national attention because of the way this was overly hastily brought to the press and due process side stepped. I am also aware that many comments on gay online sites have thought this a little trivial and that more important matters require attention. I tend to agree. If like accident spots, data is collated and an increase in homophobic incidents takes place due to this sign, then a case may be made. As this will only

Renaming or Renumbering an existing street is to be avoided unless the benefits clearly outweigh the obvious disadvantages......" I'm not wholly certain that due to a couple of people with an alternative mind constitutes a disadvantage or requirement to change a road name?

Comments:It’s very sad that a gay couple in Borough Green are objecting to a street named “Bangays Way” People would probably have walked past this sign and not given it a second thought but with the publicity it is receiving there is now a fair chance it will be vandalised. We have read some of the comments on the many articles published about this street sign and the only sympathy this “drama queen” has received are from gay newspapers. The people of Borough Green are proud of Frank Bangay’s achievements and after talking to many villagers our gay couple seem to have really alienated themselves. We would be interested to hear if the Parish Council intends to change the street name.

But no not good enough according to the local Politically correct mob. So do we change the name to TOXIC TERRACE that's more befitting is it not I am sure most of the villagers will agree . we could call any other roads Costa lot avenue and bankers garden Some people really should get a life or move back to a town Brighton maybe .

Comments:I just wanted to share with you my experience of attempting to buy shared ownership house on the Isles Quarry's site "Hazlebourne". I currently reside in Borough Green and have done for 31 years. I live with my partner and our little girl. We are currently living with my parents as our rented accommodation came to an unfortunate end. ( we do not qualify for a "council" house as we are both working ) We can not afford to buy a house in the area and the lack of properties and huge demand and extortionate pricing for rental has left us with limited options. After applying for the shared ownership scheme, we were sent an email inviting us along to view 2 properties at a specific time at "Hazlebourne Avenue". Both were 3 bedrooms properties priced at £315,000. I called the number on the email to arrange another time so that my partner could view too (he was at work at the time specified). I was told that this was the only time available and they could not accommodate my request. (Great st

Comments:Correct me if I am wrong. I was lead to believe that if Isle Quarry was allowed to take place it was going to be largely, affordable housing for first time buyers. My daughter and her family are indeed first time buyers. Yet their average annual salary combined is not enough to purchase a 3 bedroom house that they require. However, they could afford a two bedroom apartment !!! We have also discovered that the part buy part rent scheme (which they have been approved for)is a fantastic opportunity if you can afford the minimum of £1450 per month for the rent, service charge and mortgage on a 3 bedroom house. So in short, my daughter, who works part time and looks after the children in-between, her partner who works full time on the national average wage, can only afford a 2 bedroom apartment on a complex that was originally approved under the understanding that it would be affordable housing for people in the area. So please can someone explain what exactly clarifies as affordable ho

Arriva run the bus from Wrotham, and they flatly refuse to go the long way. So we either put up with the Quarry Hill route, or no bus at all. And there was a strong petition from Borough Green and Wrotham to run a bus route to the surgery now that Wrotham surgery is closed. At least we seem to have stopped the Quarry Hill busstops.

Response to Nicky
Comments:Hi Nicky, I am afraid that the only time you will hear the Bypass mentioned now, is either from Sue Murray and her friends, or a big developer. I know now that the old Parish Council & Sue had their eyes on the triangle of land bounded by the Bypass, the A25 and the A227, to get it removed from Greenbelt, get the Parish Boundary moved up to the M26 so Wrotham didn't get a full say, and get housing built. Now that area would probably take 1500-2000 house, with enough profit to build a bypass. Unfortunately, it would generate so much extra traffic, it would negate any effect on BG Traffic. That is why Tim and I have been concentrating our efforts on J5 slips, which will shift traffic off the A25 onto the motorway network, and that campaign now has the support of Parishes from West Malling to Westerham, and has now moved upward beyond just a local campaign. So if someone suggested a Bypass now, we know it would come with very heavy strings attached, and unfortunately would be s

Comments:Hi Nicky, my own personal Jiminy Cricket As a former member of the Christmas Lights Team, I can answer that question: after the Manor House, all the posts are too far to be powered from private houses. We did start to move outwards, but the lights had to be powered by EDF direct from the streetlight power. This work for the first year for the two outside Tollgate, but then EDF lost interest, we lost power, and it became a waste of time, so we pulled back to our original boundary. It is also becoming more difficult to get volunteers to help with the lights. If anyone reads this who is interested in joining that happy crew, call Sandy on 884336. Because the Parish Council cares deeply about the drab and monochrome life in the grimy north of the village, last year we extended a burst of colour with 5 new hanging basket sets as far as Tolsey Mead.

Comments:Hi Adam. I do understand your anger and frustration, and it is echoed by the Parish Council. You are quite right that vehicles from the Hornet Industrial Estate are required by a condition of their lease, and the planning permission for the site, to use the Haul Rd. But the plain fact is that Mr Dunn, the owner of the site , professes to be powerless to act unless he has hard evidence. That of course means that residents would have to sit out there all hours, which just compounds your suffering. I do not hold out much hope for the intended 7.5 tonne limit being imposed on Quarry Hill to solve the problem, if these cowboys ignore the current rules, why should extra rules have any greater effect. If we could get just one registration number, perhaps pictures, then Mr Dunn would be unable to hide anymore. I have copied this reply to Roger Dunn, and to Lindsay at T&MBC Planning, who may be able to apply some discipline via Planning Enforcement. I am sorry I cannot be any

Also the potholes in QHR have only just been filled in and vehicles of this size and weight will only open them up again. Can you do something about this asap and put a stop to it, they are way to large to be using such a narrow road, and at all hours of the night? Regards, Adam

Comments:Dear Ann As an aside, as a receiver of the current levels of Police Service, I have a comment. Our new pavilion at Potters Mede suffered criminal damage. It was not an emergency, and the PCSOs attended as booked, were extremely professional, and our CCTV will help to apprehend the perpetrator. Coincidentally, one of the PCSOs was Roxy from Wouldham Burham, who attended our own little meeting. She and her colleague got lost and had to be guided in by my wife and I on the phone. Now I stress this was not an emergency, and I was more than happy with their excellent service, but what if I had been an old lady in the process of being burgled? This is where your brave new policing model falls down. When we had our own officers, they would have known the venue, and probably even known the perpetrator . And you have ditched all that experience and knowledge. Regards Mike Taylor

Curious that they can always find the manpower to protect Government and Big Business interests, as witness Balcombe, Kingsnorth and the G7 "riots" in London. But there will be a fortnightly visit by a mobile Police Station, so long as our merry local hoodlums join in the spirit of the scheme, and only commit crimes on that day, we will be OK.

Comments:Hi Nicky That works both ways, its only if both are vigilant that safety can be achieved. A driver is deemed to be trained to drive, but modern vehicles are so swift and comfortable that the motorist is often lulled into a glazed indifference. A pedestrian should not be expected to have the same level of road awareness that is expected in law from a driver, so the duty is on the driver to be ever aware that a pedestrian might step out without regard to what a driver might expect to be a reasonable level of awareness. By a curious coincidence, yeaterday I was crossing at the very courtesy crossing we are discussing. The High St was completely clear, a van came from the railway bridge, indicated to turn into the High St, but didn't bother to stop. Shortly behind him was a Veolia dustcart, moving quite fast, no indicator , and starting to lean into the bend to go down Western Rd. I started to cross, and he swerved without slowing down into the High St, I managed a quick burst of speedand he missed me: if I had been older or not paying attention I would have been wiped out. Fortunately, as a driver for 50 years, and most of them as an HGV, I am more road aware than most pedestirans, and even I can get caught out. The onus is on drivers to be aware of what a pedestrian is going to do, possibly even before them, but not all drivers are aware. The only answer is to use well planned crossings to lure pedestrians into a safe crossing place, where a driver should be even more aware that they are likely to cross. We can only aim to reduce risk. Rgds Mike,

Comments:Hi Nicky, the reason we are going down this route is because of concerns from the public about the apparent lack of safety of the courtesy crossing. KCC simply will not allow non-standard signs, and I believe that is reinforced by the Highways Act. I personally believe the courtesy crossing works well: the majority of drivers will stop if a pedestrian is waiting, and a smaller number will stop if someone else has already stopped. There will always be some motorists who are so blind to their responsibilities to pedestrians under the Highway Code that they don't even bother stopping at redlights or zebras, controlling them is outside our responsibility. Crossing any road is always a hazard, all we can try and do is limit that hazard, but in the end it boils down to responsible drivers and responsible pedestrians. I know apparently sane people who tell me they refuse to stop at the courtesy crossing because its "not a proper crossing", completely forgetting their absolute responsibility under the Highway Code to give right of way to pedestrians, they simply ignore the Law.

We have had a few carping that it is a dangerous place to put a crossing, but if you don't put a crossing where people want to walk, they don't use it. This is part of a 9 point traffic plan that BGPC is pursuing, and some are already in the pipeline, the rest will go before KCC for a funding decision in the next financial year. There is a great deal of support in KCC for this, they are very aware that Borough green has suffered from traffic for many years and the standard response to our complaints has been:"That will be resolved when the Bypas is built", then they c*****d up and lost the Bypass.

Comments:I'm sorry but I am about to moan again this time about the piece of road outside the supermarket and Westminster Bank, This strip of road is not a pedestrian crossing and is not marked so, there is going to be a accident soon, as people are just stepping out into the road as if it is there right,cars and lorries coming from the railway bridge into the High Street suddenly have to break as someone steps out, this could cause a rear end shunt and either a pedestrian or driver could be hurt or even killed I think its about time the council either put warning signs up saying this is not a pedestrian crossing of mark it up into a crossing

Comments:Hi Simon, many thanks for kind comments, but I am just the visible bit of the team which include Barry and Rob, our Parish Council staff, councillors like Tim, Gary and Scott, and volunteers like Nick Taylor and Taylor Rothwell. It is nice to be noticed and appreciated. But OUR thanks to groups of community minded people who are taking advantage of all the saltbins we put in and are taking responsibility for "their important little bits". PS. The sterling work keeping main highways clear, and backing up our efforts is Kent County Council, not Tonbridge & Malling Borough, Rgds Mike

Obviously it's physically impossible for TMBC to treat every side road in the borough so it's great that people like yourself donate their time (+ the use of your own private vehicle) to provide a much needed service.

I have lived here just 3 years (and still love it as much as the day we moved in) but have seen the area around the coronation oak in Quarry Hill road get more and more over grown. Is anyone supposed to take care of it? I would be happy with the help of my husband to tidy it up but am not sure who I would need to contact to see if this would be ok to do. It just looks such a mess and is a real shame given it's importance in the village.

Comments:Further response to your post in May regarding Wrotham Rd pavements. Russet Homes own the hedge alongside Tollgate which has been cut right back, and the PC is now taking responsibility for the hedging between Oaktrees and Tolsey Mede. You may have noticed in recent weeks that the grass has been cut, and the hedging tractor cut. As we have time the idea is to make the pavement safe, and improve the look of the entrance to the village, as we are also doing at the Western Rd junction. Our staff are also beginning litterpick along this section of road, where pupils of Wrotham School make such a mess everyday.

Comments:Most people in BG accepted the Celcon/Bypass deal, but since that fell through, we will only get our Bypass in return for unacceptable levels of development, whether that be 1000's of houses, or a railfreight terminal. You are right, Paul Carter made us a genuine promise, but KCC now do not have the money. We are in alliance with our neighbour PCs to persuade Paul that in the short term, and for far less money than a planning application, he can bring real traffic control to the A25/A227, traffic control that he would have had to put in after building the Bypass anyway.

Sue Murray in the past financial years, as I read the figures on the T&M website drew about £13,000, being made up of Borough Cllr Allowance, mileage allowance and Mayoral Allowance. Sue pays tax on this. A record of expenses is held at http://www.tmbc.gov.uk/cgi-bin/buildpage.pl?mysql=11

Oh, how misleading is that? on investigation i/e phone the mayoral office, asked the question : turns out that they hire a limo to run her worship about . So that is why it can be seen in Staleys , Tillton and roads around the doctors surgery awaiting pick up so come on Messrs EVAN, MURRAY & SAYERS, who are you trying to hoodwink?

Comments:Let me first state that the pavements and roads are solely KCC's responsibility. We realised that KCC were unable to comply, but had concerns for our residents, so the PC bought the saltbins and supplies so we can all help ourselves. The work on pavements you have seen is carried out by the PC's part-time staff and volunteers. It would be more than helpful if uninformed people stopped criticising our efforts, and pitched in as volunteers.That way the whole VILLAGE could be made safe. Happy Christmas!!!

Comments:Hi Mike, Your comments are unfair, and would have benefited from checking your facts first. I agree with your comments about money wasted on Mayoral chains. The 6 bins were installed by the PC using the staff and volunteers, and were kept filled, and the High St pavements kept clear. However, this was done despite KCC, and was prompted by the abject failure of KCC during the bad weather last year. A lot of people worked very hard, and you are seeing the start of a program. If you have a complaint about your KCC bin in Sandy Ridge, I suggest you direct your complaint to KCC website, not us : we are not allowed to touch that bin. Rgds Mike

Comments:Good Morning Trudy, Of course I am quite aware that Rachel Evans is not a relation of David Evans, and the mention on the website is quite clearly just humorous musing. However, I am not the architect of the suggestion that Rachel Evans is related to David: Their campaign literature says "we are both young women with views of our own that are not always identical to our parents", and several people I have spoken have read that as a relationship to Murray & Evans Senior. That was an opportunity I simply could not resist: you must admit that as a campaign slogan, "Murray & Evans, want more of the same?" does have a certain punch, even if you do not agree with the facts. Still, it is only a game, which your Dad enters into with the same enthusiasm and Machiavellian joy that I do, and it isn't quite as childish as spraying graffiti on campaign posters. Nice to know you are using my websites to keep up to date, and it is curious the family similarity in writing styles( and spelling errors). Mike Taylor
