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).
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!
