It was very sad to read of the passing of David Doré in issue 190 of the PVN.
David had been a great supporter of this web site over the years with his video submissions, which we have shared with you.
His videos recorded the various events and changes around the villages over the last two decades.
His videos can be seen, of which there are many on his ‘Silk Purse Films – Channel 1’ Vimeo channel.
Mark the date on your calendar…. The A21 will be open for use on Thursday 21 September. Highways England have said:
We plan to open the road on the 21 September without any traffic management and at the national speed limit. We will continue to landscape the surrounding area. We may need to temporarily close lanes in the future so our vehicles can safely access the area and carry out this work.
We will continue with:
- construction of the Blackhurst Lane footbridge
- work on the non-motorised user route across the project
You can keep up to date on the project on the Highways England Website

Richard Snow has taken over responsibility for updating the Village Diary, which can be viewed at www.pembury.org
The diary serves two purposes. Firstly to enable event organisers to check the diary before arranging an event to avoid some clashes. Secondly to enable everyone to know what is happening in the village. It is important that information is sent to Richard at email@example.com with date, times, title of event, venue and contact details.
The www.pembury.org diary will go live on 1st Feb.
Friday 17th May, 7-8 pm, Saturday 18th May and Sunday 19th May, 11-4.
