Due to Coronavirus there is no RVA photographic competition this year but everyone is invited to send their pictures in anyway to keep a record of these strange days. There's no limit on the number you send and they don't have to reflect that strangeness; they can equally show how much of life, and particularly nature, is carrying on regardless.

Following the recent introduction of England's new three-tier system, see the poster below outlining the restrictions for Medium Alert (Tier 1) which is the level the borough is currently placed in.
Rusthall Village Association, working with Rusthall Parish Council, are still running the volunteer support service in the village. If you need help with shopping, prescription collections or a friendly voice to speak to. Please email email@example.com and we will arrange for a nearby volunteer to help you. We know government support is coming/has come to an end but we are keeping this voluntary service running as we know many are still anxious about going out and that people's circumstances and support networks can change very quickly. Please rest assured we are here for you should you need help.

The RVA is a non-political community forum & is the only body in the village that offers an informal arena in which to discuss events, issues and matters arising in the village. It is the perfect place to find out information, share ideas and get support.
We regularly have Parish and Borough Councillors attend our meetings & because we are informal we are not constrained by legal protocol. This means we are able to have open and frank discussions on what we feel is important to us as a community. We also have guest speakers and hold competitions and community minded events.
