The East Malling Conservation Group is concerned with the over-urbanisation of the landscape around and about East Malling and the insensitive nature of many local developments. The group is an occasional hirer of the Institute, using the Hall for meetings, exhibitions and social events. You can find out more about EMCG by visiting their website at http://www.emcg.org.uk/
As part of the 2021 Heritage Open Days, EMCG will be holding an exhibition of old photographs at the Institute Hall in conjunction with East Malling & Larkfield Parish Council. During the afternoon David Thornewell will be leading a Heritage Walk starting from the Hall at 2pm and returning by around 3.30pm. He intends to take in the Mill Street and Blacklands Conservation Areas, including Clare Lake, and will stop at intervals to speak about various heritage features. Refreshments will be available at the Institute for a small donation to the East Malling Conservation Group. Further details for the exhibition, including opening times, will be posted in due course.
