On behalf of the Marden Business Forum, we’d like to wish Will & Jill Welby a happy retirement from the Marden Post Office and thank them for all their hard work over the past years.
‘Good Luck’ to Nav in Crowhurst & Tompsetts (The Premier) in taking it on. Having lost our Bank, it was vital that our Post Office should remain open, it appears to be in safe hands!
What will happen to the Old post Office is uncertain at the moment, but all I can say, is, the Purchaser has the wellbeing of Marden at heart and he wishes to keep it as retail use…
Any entrepreneurs out there with some great ideas????

Burtons have just taken on an extra building in Pattenden Lane, Weald House opposite the entrance to Wheelbarrow Ind Est.
Over the last couple of years we have developed two additional strings to our business bow. We now stock and distribute an extensive range of products for canine beauty professionals (dog grooming) as well as an ever growing range of products and feeds for Koi ponds, including the BD series of drum filters, which we manufacture at our main site.
Weald House will be the centre of operations for these products, which are sold online and also provide a warm welcome to those wishing to view products in our show room and make purchases to take home. We hope to have everything up and running by the end of April.
Why not call in and have a browse? Everything you need from a small bottle of dog shampoo to a whole new filtration system for your pond!
FREE Men’s Health Programme
Match Fit is a unique programme, designed to help men exercise more and lose weight. The course involves 10 one hour sessions with an experienced exercise professional. Over the 10 weeks participants will gradually build up their level and intensity of exercise.
Why ‘just for men’?
Many men find the thought of going to a gym is not for them or maybe they haven’t exercised for a while. This is a free course for men of all ages, backgrounds and abilities that have a BMI of 28 or more.
Where and when does it take place?
Courses will be running: Wednesdays, 5:00pm – 6:00pm at Heather House, Parkwood starting 5th April Thursdays, 6:00pm – 7:00pm at Gallagher Stadium, Maidstone starting 6th April.
Bridgeland Copyright will be promoting its marketing and PR services at this year’s Kent Vision Live show on 10th May at the Kent Event Centre at Detling: kentvision-live.co.uk
Photography has always formed a major part of the Onclick elearning development service. But last year, we were excited to expand this offering, by opening a dedicated photographic and film studio, right here in Marden.
Whether we are snapping staff profiles for company websites, product ranges for promotions, covering outside events or filming interviews and demonstrations, Onclick Photography can support your unique business and personal needs.
Some of our recent projects have included catalogue photography for Alpha Wholesale, fashion shoots with Brogdale Boutique and a new brand launch for sexual health charity, Brook.
But alongside the corporate projects, we enjoy venturing into the local community for the more personal shoots with individual models and families.
We are now offering all Marden Business Forum members, their staff, families and friends a 20% discount on our rates.
