Back to the park

The reason I started a blog last spring was to get together information to use for the Friends of Grosvenor and Hilbert Park, collecting history from around the local area.

July 13th & 14th 2013 Tunbridge Wells

They are going to be collected by  the organisers of Oxjam Takeover, to be used at the Jam Slam on Sunday… Yes – what the **** am I talking about? Here’s a quote from the Oxjam facebook page: “Oxjam … Continue reading
