Inaugurated in May 2007, Friends of Broomhill is a charity dedicated to the improvement and enrichment of Broomhill Park. We own the Old Orchard, a nine acre site, adjacent to the park. We hold regular task days through the year where volunteers meet and get involved in clearing and cutting back along pathways, planting new bulbs, shrubs and wildflowers. We work very closely with Medway Council to enable our park to be 'Strood's Hidden Gem'. All our work is ongoing and can only happen with help from volunteers so if you would like to get involved please contact us (details below).   Broomhill Park received a prestigious Green Flag award for the 10th consecutive year during 2021, a fantastic accolade! Friends of Broomhill are delighted to have received 2 awards for 2021 from South & South East in Bloom – An ‘Outstanding’ in The Community Gardening Category and ‘Silver’ in the Conservation Area Category. We are extremely thankful to our volunteers who work throughout the year to maintain and improve Broomhill Park and the Old Orchard, their hard work and dedication has been rewarded!

Latest News...

We have now finished the brick seat in the Old Orchard! It is located at the entrance that is near the Human Sundial right at the top of the Park. This bench has engraved tiles set into the top, which were purchased by private individuals and companies who donated towards the cost of purchasing The Old Orchard.  We are very grateful to our builder, M.P.Noye Building Contractors for the efficient and careful way in which the whole project was executed  We hope you'll look out for it on your next walk in the park!
