Broomhill Park, Strood, Rochester, UK.

"Our aim is to incorporate the old orchard into a unified and extended Broomhill Park, that will be protected from development for all time."

Within 1 year of purchase we will make the orchard safe for public use, and selectively and sensitively clear areas to create a family friendly space. We will also designate and protect a large area to remain as it is, except for the possible reintroduction of species, for wildlife and environmental reasons.


Above all we will try to preserve the old orchard's special and unique characteristics.

Education

• We will work with Strood Academy and five primary schools - all within walking distance of the park - to provide a curriculum based resource relevant to their learners.

• We will work with youth groups including the Scouts, Strood Youth Centre, and the local YOT team to provide opportunities to develop lifeskills in project based activities.

• We will build a pop up forest school, for teachers and group leaders to use.

• We will develop links with special needs providers in the area to develop accredited project based learning opportunities.


Sport and Health

• We will extend the popular trim trail with innovative equipment.

• We will promote healthy activity for our young people with a trail for BMX bikes, and a skateboard and parkour (freerunning) park. No such facility presently exists in the area.

Community

• We will build a path that for the first time will allow wheelchair users to access the summit, and the viewpoints.

• We will open up areas and improve sightlines as we did in the main Park, to encourage family use and increase feelings of safety.

Widlife

• We will work with leading experts and dedicated enthusiasts, to ensure that the old orchard remains a safe refuge for all wildlife, with designated areas that will remain undisturbed.
