News & Events

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.

Further dates for your diary:
10 Sep 2017 - After last year’s successful presence at the Tonbridge Farmers Market we shall again be taking a stall this year. It is a great opportunity to show ourselves to the public and also to make contact with other local organisations which may benefit from the twinning link.
16 Sep 2017 - The annual English Picnic will be taking place in Heusenstamm on 16 September. A lovely occasion, well worth a trip to our twin town, as the weather is usually glorious!
