April 2022 Update
Date Published: Sat 2nd Apr

Hoping that everyone is managing to stay well - and can work out what clothes they need for our incredibly varied weather! The latest newsletter is out now, and we have quite a few events coming up.

Lost/ found property: This is a difficult matter for FoGH as we are volunteers, and visit the park at different times. Generally small found items arre handed in to the cafe (Table 8) and larger items make their way to the park keeper's compound (opp bowls green). We do get asked if 'we' have found things, and we can check back with both Table 8 and park keeper Tony Cheeseman, but often it's quicker to just pop back to the park and ask them!

As a vast quantity of large found items are now in the compound, and despite some posts we made on social media to try and find the owners, they remain unclaimed. We will be offering these 'for sale/ donation' at our April litter pick event to try and make room. The official council policy is that only very valuable items are reported to the Police, other items found in parks are disposed of after a reasonable time.

We are looking forward to more warm weather so we can get out and about and help with some planting and weeding events.

We have agreed to not have a FoGH event for the Jubilee, but there's an awful lot happening in Tunbridge Wells that weekend.

January 2022 update
Date Published: Sun 2nd Jan

Happy New Year everyone.

2022 is Jubilee Year, and we will be planting a tree in the park as part of The Queen's Green Canopy (www.queensgreencanopy.org). Watch out for information on date of planting, hopefully you can join us.

We won't be holding a Big Garden Birdwatch in the park this year, but please hold one in your garden and submit the results to the RSPB (www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch) over the weekend of 28th - 30th January.

The 2022 Winter Lantern Parade is set to go ahead on Saturday 5th February. The parade will start in the town centre, walk along Camden Road, and finish in the park. There are various workshops and also a request for volunteers on the day, please see their Facebook page for more information (www.facebook.com/WinterLanternParade). This is a great community event for our local area!
