Parish Council







Defibrillator now Installed in Phone Box

A defibrillator for the parish has been purchased and installed in the Red Telephone Kiosk, on the Village Green, at the top of Old Loose Hill, just up from the McAlpine Allotments. A demonstration on its use was held at the Annual Parish Meeting on April 25, and also at the North Loose Residents’ Association, on May 12.

The Loose Parish Council would like to thank Community Heartbeat Trust and KCC Councillor Paulina Stockell, for funding this vital local resource.


Loose Parish Pavilion Vacancies

The parish pavilion has a few vacant slots during weekdays, for anyone wishing to hire it, either on a regular or non-regular basis. We are also able to take bookings for anyone wishing to hire it at weekends, between 9am-10.30pm (events must finish by 10pm – when the music licence expires).

The King George V Playing Field (where the parish pavilion is located) also has vacancies on a Saturday, for any football club looking for a new home ground. 

More details on hiring the pavilion or field.

Suspicious Activities

Residents are asked to be on the look-out for any anti-social behaviour or suspicious activities, particularly around the Brooks, Brooks Field and the King George V Playing Field. If you spot anything, please record as many details as possible and ring the police on 101 (or 999 if an emergency). You are strongly advised not to tackle the problem yourself.


Loose Neighbourhood Plan Update
