Our Projects 

FoDP work in conjunction with TWBC raising funds for much needed causes, the money raised goes towards various projects in the park.


In 2019, Friends’ volunteers and Kent High Weald Partnership (KHWP) completed the refurbishment of the smaller island in the lake.  The work was carried out at a about one third of the cost of the larger island which was refurbished by a commercial contractor in 2016.


Towards the end of 2019, we had accumulated further funds from membership subscriptions, donations and grants.  Our plans now for 2019-2020 include the following:



  • Funding KHWP to work with the Monday volunteers  group.  This will allow for the cutting back of the laurel, cutting of reeds in the pond and thinning and cutting growth by the stream.                   


  • Fund an 8 week Park Time project in the spring.  This is a scheme which allows people with mental health issues to carry out voluntary work in a calm and attractive environment.                                                 


  • Fund the protection of the surface roots of the two oak trees near the café.


  • Fund the lines of chestnut posts etc to protect the stream below the lake.


  • Donate funds to TWBC for the protection of the lake banks.                                                                                           


  • Donate funds to TWBC for the construction of VC Grove Path – this is a project already completed by TWBC.


  • Fund the installation of a drinking water facility in the Park to help reduce the use of one-trip plastics bottles.
