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'. 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 9th consecutive year during 2020, a fantastic accolade! Friends of Broomhill are delighted to have received 2 awards for 2020 from South & South East in Bloom – An ‘Outstanding’ in The Community Gardening Award 2020 Desktop Challenge and ‘Silver’ in the Small Conservation/ Conservation/Large Conservation Area Award 2020 Desktop Challenge. 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!

The Healing Power of Nature

There’s a growing body of scientific evidence to suggest that getting outside and connecting with nature is good for us.
