Welcome

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'. More recently the volunteers have been focussed on the Old Orchard and have made a tremendous difference in clearing pathways in the area. 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 8th consecutive year during 2019, a fantastic accolade! Friends of Broomhill are extremely proud to have been awarded a level 5 RHS South East Britain in Bloom ‘Its Your Neighbourhood’ award, for the 6th consecutive year, together with a Certificate of Distinction for 2019. Our volunteers really do make a difference and make these achievements possible!
