Welcome to Badlesmere Lees

Badlesmere Lees is situated on the A251 four miles south of Faversham.

It is 16 acres of green and pleasant land which is communally maintained by the residents that live around its edge.

The cost of maintaining the Lees for the enjoyment of all means we have to raise funds.  We have regular events that get the community together and bring in some cash.  Please come and enjoy our Lees and help us keep it pretty by supporting our activities.

Badlesmere Lees and Hall Committee

The Committee now meets regularly to consider issues and improvements with regard to the Lees and the village hall.  

A list of members and a full archive of the meeting minutes can be seen here.

Walk on the Lees

The Lees is lovely to stroll on at any time of year.  It is also criss-crossed by footpaths leading to and from the local attractions and churches

In May the surrounding woods have breathtaking displays of bluebells.

The 2nd Badlesmere Lees Summer Quiz took place on the 23rd July 2016 was a great success.  The quiz had some fiendish questions set by Jane Austin and thanks to her for organising it all.  The night raised over £300 for the upkeep of our village defibrillator which is now installed and operational in the phone box at the entrance to Falcon Farm.  Our thanks to Tom Treasure for donating the use of the box and Ian Earl for his work installing it.
