Things for young people to do in Edenbridge

Did you know that 0-15 year olds make up around 20% of our local population in Edenbridge?* We are proud of the facilities we provide for this age group and the funding we are able to give to local groups that benefits young people in the town. Here’s a reminder of just how much there is for young people in Edenbridge, which may give some ideas of what to do during the summer holidays!

  • Blossoms Park skatepark and BMX ramps
  • Recreation Ground – home to Edenbridge Rugby Club and other sports opportunities
  • Playgrounds at Spitals Cross, Marsh Green, Stangrove Park and Recreation Ground
  • Stangrove Park outdoor gym and sports area including Street Snooker and Crossbar King

Council helps fund school play improvements

Two councillors at children's play area
They thought their playground days were over! Cllr Angela Baker and Cllr Alan Layland at Hever C of E Primary School

Cllr Angela Baker and Cllr Alan Layland were able to step out of the office last week and back in the playground to attend Hever C of E Primary School’s ‘Volunteer and Supporter Tea‘.

In 2022 the Town Council’s CIL Board awarded the school £24,659.72 towards its Longevity Project. The project aims to transform the functionality and all-weather usability of the outdoor areas by improving the ground and installing new play equipment and a children’s outdoor gym.

Cllr Baker said: “It is clearly evident to see how hard the PTA works in the school and what an amazing impact they have.
“It was a lovely afternoon hosted by the Year 6 class and a great opportunity to see the difference our grant has made towards the playground equipment and outdoor area. I’m sure the children really enjoy using the wonderful space that has been created.”

Cllr Layland added: “Over 80% of pupils at Hever School are Edenbridge residents, so I’m pleased that these improvements will benefit them and many others for years to come.”
