Dr. Hilary Moorby

Posted by on Apr 10th, 2018 in Latest News | Comments Off on Dr. Hilary Moorby

Dr.Hilary Moorby was born in Longton, one of the 5 towns that make up Stoke on Trent in 1934. She went to Manchester University to get a B.Sc. in Botany and met Jeff there. They were married soon after they graduated in 1956.

Having travelled extensively in their early marriage following Jeff’s career they settled in Oxfordshire where Hilary registered for a D. Phil prior to moving in 1986 to Smithfield Farmhouse in Kingsnorth where she and Jeff lived for 31 years.

She maintained her link to Oxford but worked as a Research Fellow at Wye for about 10 years.

A month after the moving to Kingsnorth Hilary and Jeff attended a meeting of the Kingsnorth Village Society. They were immediately co-opted onto the committee and a few months later Hilary was elected to the Parish Council. Hilary became a fixture on the Parish Council and a short time later joined the Campaign to Protect Rural England. She threw herself into the work of both organisations and served as Chairman of both the Parish Council and the Kent branch of CPRE and CPRE awarded her a medal for her work.

In both roles she was keen on environmental matters. She was a member of the Kent Reptile and Amphibian Group monitoring the distribution of Great Crested and Smooth newts in the village and was very involved in the acquisition and development of the Buffer Zone, the Community Orchard and the bridle way through the buffer zone.

 Another passion was planning matters both in the village and in Ashford and Kent as a whole. She enjoyed discussing and arguing her case with developers and the planning officers in planning enquiries and elsewhere. She was still involved in an enquiry into plans for Brabourne Lees in January of this year, after she had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but she soon had to give up.

Hilary died a day after her 83rd birthday.

Kingsnorth has lost a dear friend and champion.

We’ll all miss her.

Posted by on Mar 6th, 2018 in Latest News | Comments Off on Road Closure: TALLY HO ROAD, KINGSNORTH

KENT COUNTY COUNCIL
TALLY HO ROAD, KINGSNORTH
(PROHIBITION OF DRIVING)
TEMPORARY ORDER 2018

To allow drainage improvement works to be carried out, Kent County Council has made an Order to temporarily prohibit through traffic on part of Tally Ho Road, Kingsnorth, near Ashford.

A closure is planned from Monday 19 March 2018 for an estimated period of up to 5 days.

Tally Ho Road will be closed in the general vicinity of the junction with Magpie Hall Road.

Access to the remainder of Tally Ho Road continues from a Shadoxhurst direction up to where the road is actually closed, but there will be no through access during these works.

The alternative route is via Magpie Hall Road, Ashford Road and Hornash Lane.

Due to the nature of the works, the road will need to remain closed outside the working hours.

Access for any residents affected will be maintained when it is safe to do so, but there are likely to be delays and certain times when this is not possible for safety reasons.
