The Grosvenor & Hilbert Park Community Orchard

The Community Orchard project is part of the lottery funded regeneration project for Grosvenor and Hilbert Park and is managed by the Friends of Grosvenor & Hilbert Park in partnership with the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.

The Community Orchard is located in the field behind the top football pitch. This has laid fallow since the war when it was used for allotments so the soil is really good. We hope this project will enfuse the local community and bring this under-used piece of land back into production.

15 lottery funded trees were planted in early December 2014. The first phase of community trees went in during February 2015, with a second phase planted in December.

Sponsor a tree as a lasting legacy in the Park, to celebrate a milestone in your life or to commemorate a loved one.  Watch the trees mature and enjoy sharing the fruit!

Note: We are now taking applications for phase 3 which will take place later in 2016.
