“Good afternoon. I have just visited the adventure grounds with my daughter who is one year old. We had a wonderful time, it’s absolutely lovely, you must be so proud of all your hard work. Thank you for giving the community such a wonderful gift.

I work for Kent Police and came to one of the first meetings in Mountfield Gardens, I have had quite allot of time off due to maternity leave and now have a new role. It’s so amazing to know that this happened because of your pure determination.

So much thought has gone in to the design and I know we’re going to have many happy days there”. Sophie Catherine


“A massive congratulations on all the hard work you’ve put into this. I often use you all as an example of how great the community is within Tunbridge Wells in helping us to shape and improve the town”. William Benson, CEO of Tunbridge Wells Borough Council
