WELCOME TO OSPRINGE
Welcome to the Ospringe parish website. Ospringe valley runs through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south of the historic market town of Faversham in rural Kent, south east England.
Our website offers you details and updates from the parish council, together with details of clubs and organisations within it, local history, local info and contact details for local government representatives.

DOWNLOADING DOCUMENTS: IMPORTANT NOTE
Some council documents may not currently be available for download on Apple devices due to a fault that the website provider is currently working to resolve. Downloads to other desktops, laptops and phones should be operating normally. If you are unable to view or download any documents on this site, copies can be obtained by emailing the clerk via email@example.com.
This is a national, community run initiative, designed to reduce the number of speeding vehicles through the Parish. As a volunteer you will be standing at the side of the road as part of a community team, with a police authorised speed measuring device recording vehicle details. These details are passed to the police, who then do all the follow-up action. You will not have any direct engagement with the motorists.
Sessions will run for 90 minutes, initially early in the morning or late afternoon. Sessions will be once a month, or more frequently if there are lots of volunteers.
All equipment is provided by Kent Police. Training is an online module that takes about 30 minutes. If you are interested and would like to know more, please contact Chris Elworthy: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, simply go straight to the website and self register your interest and complete your online training here.
SWALE LITTER SQUAD
SWALE Litter Squad has been set up to help and coordinate the growing army of volunteers who are taking to our streets and lanes to keep our community clean.
We know a number of community-minded residents in Ospringe already walk our streets and lanes informally on litter picks, and would encourage more to get involved.
With funding from Swale Borough Council, SLS have acquired 30 litter pickers and 30 bag hoops to loan out to people across the local area.
You can join the drive and find out more on the Facebook page here, or simply search Swale Litter Squad on Facebook.
If you would like to get involved, join a group litter pick in the future or borrow some gear to help clean up the streets near you, please contact SLS via the Facebook page.
The parish council is concerned about a rise in fly-tipping in the country lanes. We encourage parishioners to download the Country Eye mobile phone app, which allows the convenient instant reporting of fly-tipping to Swale Borough Council for action, including the precise location and photographs.
For information on how to download the app, click here or go to countryeye.co.uk.
