Grosvenor & Hilbert Park News

2019 news
Date Published: Fri 5th Jul 2019

 2019 has seen the end of the Heritage Lottery Funding in Grosvenor and Hilbert Park (see newsletters for more inforation).

At the end of June we all said Goodbye to Community Engagement Officer Emma Peters as she moved on to a new job in Essex. 

The Friends of Grosvenor and Hilbert Park remain in close contact with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council Parks Department. Our AGM in May lead to changes in our committee, and we are pleased to welcome new members Linda and Sara, who are getting up to speed on all that is happening! 

Some summer events that Emma had planned are still going ahead, thanks to Kent High Weald Partnership. FoGH will also continue with the events we traditionally held, and looking at how we can maybe take on some of the events previously held by the CEOs. 

We can also pass on any comments and concerns to The Council, although for urgent incidents we still suggest the public contact The Police directly using the 101 number: 


We hope everyone is enjoying the planters around the playground and bowls green - it's almost time for In Bloom judging across Royal Tunbridge Wells. 

We have an informal picnic get together in July, as part of Love Parks Week - and loving our park is very much the basis of Friends of Grosvenor and Hilbert Park. 


2018 News
Date Published: Wed 3rd Oct 2018

All our 2018 news is available in the newsletters section, but there have been a few hi-lights.

We had a Fete on the first May Bank Holiday Monday, which was a great success, with lovely weather. The community picnic in July as part of Love Parks Week was in scorching weather! While our litter pick in March was re-scheduled due to snow and freezing tempertures. 

The weather also played a part in the amazing blooms in the planters along the bowling green and playground railings. A big thanks to the volunteer squad who watered them through the hot spell. 

The park has remained busy during the year, from sledging to summer holiday ice-creams, and the Friends group are now planning for the next lot of seasonal events: Apple Day, Halloween and Christmas carols.
