Certificate of Excellence

Fair View Bed & Breakfast have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence for 2018!

Congratulations from all in the MBF for this wonderful achievement.

Marden in Bloom

The following companies have generously sponsored Marden in Bloom this year:

These donations help to keep the Marden in Bloom project going and we will be use by replacing the village planters with plants in the Autumn
when we will advertise the sponsors, buying more bulbs to plant in open spaces and for another project next year such as the School Project.

Can we also thank the Business Forum for distributing our leaflet with the new Business Directory.

With very many thanks.
Anne Boswell
Chairman of Marden in Bloom

Host your own MBF event?

The Marden Business Forum would like to invite you to host an event at your premises.  This is a chance to tell the story of your success, perhaps a factory/workshop tour, a ‘have a go’ or tasting, followed by buffet food and drinks. 

The Business Forum have a budget for each event which we will give you to help with costs.  The average attendance is between 30-40 people but numbers can be limited dependant on the size of your premises.

Don’t forget to LIKE the Marden Business Forum on Facebook.All events and reminders are on our page.

Marden Neighbourhood Plan

We have been asked to circulate the news that the Neighbourhood Plan is now complete and encourage everyone to consult it.
The full plan is available at the Parish Council Offices at the Memorial Hall, the Library, the Medical Centre and various other venues in the village.
It is also available on line via
www.mardenkent-pc.gov.uk
There are two Consultation Open sessions on 13th July between 6pm and 8pm and Saturday 14th July between 9am and 12noon in the John Banks Hall at Marden Memorial Hall.
The Steering Group would be grateful to receive your views to ensure the plan represents the best interests of Marden.

Marden Resident

The MBF have received this letter, from a resident in Lime Tree Close, can any Member enlighten us?

During the last three years we have lived here, about this time of year, just when you can have the windows fully open, someone/company burns something that smells like plastic.
This is always done around 2am and lasts for a couple of hours. Difficult to point a finger at anyone but it would seem reasonable to suppose that it is coming from the industrial area in Pattenden Lane.
Could I ask you to contact your members and either try to establish who is doing this or at least make them aware of the environmental effects this has?

If you can help, please contact committee@mardenbusinessforum.com

Is there any one in the forum that undertakes cleaning services?

Please email me direct if this is something you are interested in,
Kind regards,
