Welcome to this Shorne Parish Council website which provides residents and those interested in our Parish’s activities with the most up to date information on local news and issues affecting our community. Please follow the "site map" link shown on this page for the latest news stories and to catch up with current developments.
The Parish of Shorne is located halfway between Gravesend and the City of Rochester. Its boundaries stretch from the River Thames to the A2 main road between London and Dover. Despite its location the Parish largely retains its largely rural character. The Parish Council is determined to protect this natural environment – our beautiful woods, fields and hills – against any threats of urban and commercial expansion. Parishioners are welcome to get in touch with the Parish Clerk or individual Councillors, through the contact details provided on this website, on any matters of concern or where advice or assistance is required.

Join Us for the next Volunteer Litter Patrol, 10am Saturday 10th October 2015
On 21st March, volunteers participated in a litter patrol and clear up around the streets of Shorne, as part of National Clear Up Day. This was very successful, and we managed to pick up a dozen bags of litter.

If you would like to help out, please join us at
SHORNE VILLAGE HALL CAR PARK at 10AM, SATURDAY, 10th OCTOBER 2015
Litter pickers, bags, and Hi Viz waistcoats will be provided, but please bring your own gloves. The litter patrols are expected to last between 1½ and 2 hours.

Footpaths Vegetation Clearance
Ten intrepid volunteers, armed with a variety of shears, scythes, loppers, and secateurs, gathered in Crown Lane on Sunday 2nd August to tackle the overgrown vegetation which was obstructing footpath NS163. KCC Rights of Way Team were unable to attend until September, so Shorne Volunteers stepped into the breach and hacked their way through 200 metres of brambles, nettles, and bushes, opening the way to the chalk pits and Shorne Ifield.
We still need more volunteers for future footpath clearance outings, so if you are interested in joining the team and would like further information, please press here.
