East Malling Conservation Group (EMCG) was born in July 1986 having been conceived by a group of like minded souls who wanted to see that the fabric of the village and natural environment of the locality were adequately protected. Since that day in 1986 the membership has grown steadily and the group has increased in strength.
The group is basically concerned with the (real and perceived) over-urbanisation of our landscape and the insensitive nature of many local developments. This does not mean that EMCG objects to all change and development but looks to balance the needs of modern life with that of the value of the local heritage.
The East Malling Centre is a Community Centre incorporating a Cafe, Allotment, Woodland experience and business hub in East Malling.
St James the Great Church St James The Great is a vibrant, inclusive church in a diverse community in East Malling and is a part of a benefice of churches including Wateringbury and Teston.
