  • 431 Bus Service

    The 402 bus service has now stopped and been replaced by the 431 service, operated by Go Coaches.
    The service runs between Orpington High Street and Sevenoaks Bus Station. The timetable is a more restricted than it used to be, with only 4 buses operating per day in each direction.  Also there is no service on Saturdays, Sundays or Public Holidays, including Christmas day and Boxing Day.

    To view the new timetable either go to the Local Information page, and click on the “Buses” tab, or you can also download a leaflet with details of the service.

  • Recreation Ground Benches

    We did mention last year that we would be pleased to welcome help from parishioners to paint the benches on the Recreation Ground.  But, on inspection, there are only four benches which are able to be used.  Thanks must go to Miss Dicker who keeps her brother’s bench in excellent condition.

    There must be other people in the village who own or have connections with  the other benches.  perhaps there are one or two who would like to volunteer to carry out some repairs.  It is sad, but if someone doesn’t come forward, the damaged benches will have to be removed.

    Contact the Clerk to offer your help on .01959 534881, or email her at

  • Allotments

    There are several vacant plots at the allotments and many of these have been worked in the past so are ready for use.  The annual charge is still £25.00 (to include water costs) and hoses can now be used.
    There are also half plots available at £12.50.
    Several allotment holders are starting up an Allotments Association which means that seeds and plants can often be bought at a reduced price.
    If you are interested in a plot contact the Clerk, either :
