Schools’ exchanges: A group of 30 Judd pupils visited Heusenstamm in May (13th-15th) and the exchange visit to Tonbridge took place in July (1st-10th). A link has been established between the Slade School and the Matthias-Claudius-Schule in Rembrücken.
Work has started on the flower border around the Heusenstamm Relic near Tonbridge Castle. The Relic, a stone from the old castle in Heusenstamm, was presented to Tonbridge in 1994 on the 10th anniversary of the twinning link. There was 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. Members of TCG, together with pupils of Sevenoaks School’s Voluntary Service Unit are doing the actual work, aided by a teacher and members of HFC. To see photos of the progress of the border, click here . This gallery will be updated regularly as work progresses.
