 Ashford Borough Council is looking for volunteers who can aid the set-up of the parish council (also known as a community council).  The first election for the new body will be held in May 2019 but, there is a substantial amount of work that needs to be undertaken before then, particularly between the months of April to October. 

The borough council is assembling a group known as a shadow council who can help with the establishment of the parish council.  Click this link for more information on how you can get involved. 


About the Forum

Kennington Community Forum is an open forum set up to represent the views of people living and working in Kennington and to help communicate those views to Ashford Borough Council and other statutory organisations. It is an independent voluntary group with its own constitution (updated 30 September 2014). The Forum is led by a Core Group comprising the Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and up to nine other Members and it is also supported by an officer from Ashford Borough Council. We are always pleased to have new volunteers for the Core Group to help with running the Forum. You can find out more about how to become involved here.

Anybody living or working in the Kennington Community Forum Area (which includes the wards of Kennington, Bockhanger, Bybrook, Little Burton Farm, and the non-parished part of Boughton Aluph ward) can attend any of the meetings or become involved in the forum.  The Forum is about to close as a new parish council will soon come into being, but in the meantime we are always happy to see new people at our meetings. 
Our final open meeting will be held at St. Mary’s Community Centre, Rylands Road, Bybrook, Ashford, Kent, TN24 9LL, starting at 7:30pm on Tuesday 5 June 2018. 
See our Minutes and Agendas page for details of our meetings. 
If you have any local issues that you have been unable to resolve, we can help you speak to the right person. Any person living or working within the Kennington Community Forum area can report observations to the Kennington Community Forum Core Group. These observation may be concerns, complaints, suggestions or praise on any aspect to do with the general well being of the Kennington Community Forum area. Please e-mail Kennington Community Forum
