Schools’ exchanges: The 2017 schools’ exchanges between Judd School and the Adolf Reichwein Gymnasium took place on 11-19 May in Heusenstamm and 18 -25 June in Tonbridge with a reception on the 21st. For a report and photo, please see the Event below.  The link between The Slade School and Germany continues with the recent successful visit of Sonja Busemann, Head Teacher of the Matthias-Claudius-Schule in Rembrücken.

The flower border around the Heusenstamm Relic near Tonbridge Castle is creating a lot of interest from passersby. The Relic, a stone from the old castle in Heusenstamm, was presented to Tonbridge in 1994 on the 10th anniversary of the twinning link. After an initial consultation between Alison Marsden, of Gardening by Design, Debi Simpson of Tonbridge Community Gardeners (TCG) and Eileen Best and Suzannah Niklas of HFC, the garden was laid out and planted by members of TCG, together with pupils of Sevenoaks School’s Voluntary Service Unit and members of HFC. It is now being maintained by local volunteers, including the landlady of The Chequers Inn, Roz. We recently received a donation from the Tonbridge Lions for its upkeep. To see photos of the progress of the border, click here . This gallery will be updated regularly.

Following on from last year’s success, we again had a stall at the Tonbridge Farmers’ Market on the 10th of September. We are very grateful to Anne Metherell, Sue Murray and Denis Collins, who helped David at our Stall by chatting to passers-by and handing out leaflets etc. This was a good opportunity to make new contacts, and David had some very useful conversations that morning. Please go to our facebook page to see some photos.
