Staplehurst Parish Council
The Parish Council employs a caretaker who inspects selected locations around the village. He clears litter from them, undertakes repairs and reports any items that require more major attention. From April to September the inspections happen three times a week and for the rest of the year normally once a week.
The caretaker's main areas of activity are the Surrenden Playing Field, Nicholson Walk, Jubilee Sports Field (including the Skate Park) and Bell Lane. However, the caretaker also responds to requirements throughout the village.
