Pembury Community Centre and Estate

Giving your child a great introduction to the world of reading.

Every Tuesday we hold book clubs for parents and children under five in the Pembury Community Centre. Run by local volunteers, this is a friendly and welcoming group where parents and children (aged four and under) can have fun together.

These are fun and interactive sessions for the whole family and include storytelling sessions, reading, rhyme sing-a-longs and arts and crafts.

Come and enjoy reading with your child and meet other local parents! The sessions are free and refreshments are provided.

Free books

If you live on the Pembury estate and you have a child aged 5 or under, then you can register to receive a free book every month for your child delivered to your door.
