Community Christmas Tree Lights Switched On

The evening of 4th December 2021 saw the switching on of the Christmas Tree lights in the centre of Kempsey. Our host for the event was Councillor Neil Stevens who was assisted by Santa Claus and the 'Company Theatre Academy' Choir. There were around 40 people in attendance who were then served hot drinks and mince pies in the Parish Hall.
A big thanks to all who helped to organise this excellent event.




Kempsey Parish Council is supporting the planting of more daffodils during September and October 2021 to expand upon last year’s spectacular Spring display.  We have also recently installed three new raised beds with the aim to provide more colour across the seasons.

More volunteers are needed to help us with the new planting and in maintaining the raised beds and planters. 

Let's be proud of our village and heritage.  Together we can achieve something special. 

If you would like to join in, please contact the Parish Council at
