Free Christmas tree collections

After this year’s festivities have ended, Sevenoaks District Council will collect and recycle your real Christmas tree for free.

From Wednesday 2 January until Friday 1 February, the Council will collect any tree with a trunk of up to 90mm (3.5 inches) in diameter.

Simply leave your tree at the boundary of your property, and visible from the road, by 7am on the day the Garden Waste Collection Service visits your road.

If you’re not sure when the service is scheduled for your area, visit www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/collectiondays and search for your road.

All the trees collected are turned into environmentally friendly compost and for this reason, the Council cannot take trees which are decorated or in pots or stands.

If your tree is too big for this service, you can take it to one of Kent County Council’s (KCC) Household Waste Recycling Centres. Visit www.kent.gov.uk or call KCC on 03000 417373 for locations and opening times.

Summer Family Fun Days

SAVE THE DATE – Wednesday 1 st August Four Elms Recreation ground, 22nd August Hever village hall 10am – 2pm. FREE family fun day.

Running across the Sevenoaks District for four weeks from Monday 30 July to Friday 24 August, our Summer Family Fun Days are bound to be as popular as ever with children and parents.

Summer Family Fun Days include everything from crafts and face painting to games and sport in a friendly, safe environment. Best of all, they’re totally FREE and open to all. No booking is needed, just turn up and have fun!

Children must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times. Activities are generally aimed at children under the age of 12, but they may not be suitable for very young children. All activities are weather dependent, so please ensure children have both waterproof clothing and sun block. We do advise that you check our website before setting off, as the programme may be subject to change at short notice.

All dates and locations are on our website www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/summerfun


FOUR ELMS PLAYGROUND UPDATE Thank you for your patience – “we” (our fabulous caretaker actually) is watering the new turf daily and hopes to have the new safety surface down next week. Typical weather – just when we need some rain, it’s a heatwave 😉 Thanks to Four Elms Primary school for letting us use their water!
