News & Events

Schools’ exchanges: The schools' exchanges between the Judd School and the Adolf Reichwein Gymnasium, which would have taken place during May and June of this year, have regrettably had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The link between the Slade School and the Matthias-Claudius-Schule in Rembrücken continues to develop.

The Haysden Volunteer Group has turned the Heusenstamm Friendship Wood into a bluebell wood by planting 1000s of native bluebell bulbs. The Circle has contributed to this project by providing funding for 2000 bulbs, in the hope that it will encourage more people to visit. Come April, it should be a blaze of colour!

The flower border around the Heusenstamm Relic near Tonbridge Castle is creating a lot of interest from passersby. The Relic, a stone from the old castle in Heusenstamm, was presented to Tonbridge in 1994 on the 10th anniversary of the twinning link. After an initial consultation between Alison Marsden, of Gardening by Design, Debi Simpson of Tonbridge Community Gardeners (TCG) and Eileen Best and Suzannah Niklas of HFC, the garden was laid out and planted by members of TCG, together with pupils of Sevenoaks School’s Voluntary Service Unit and members of HFC. We recently received a donation from the Tonbridge Lions for its upkeep, which has enabled us to hire a professional gardener, who took over the care of the garden from our original volunteers in the autumn of 2017. To see photos of the progress of the border, click here . This gallery will be updated regularly.

Dates for your diary:

All the usual events throughout 2020 were cancelled due the Coronavirus restrictions, both here and in Heusenstamm.

It is hoped that with the easing and eventual lifting of restrictions, we will be able to organise some events for later on in 2021.

Please check this page or our facebook page for up to date information on any of the events in these uncertain times.
