Our knowledgeable custodians are keen to show you around and tell you about Fordwich Town Hall’s history, its importance and connection to the building of Canterbury Cathedral.

Welcome to Fordwich


Following a successful plant swap at the Town Hall garden on Bank Holiday Monday the inaugural meeting of Fordwich Friendly Garden Society took place on Wednesday 5th July at The School House.

We have been meeting on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm to exchange ideas and expertise as well as planning related events and activities.

There are some well established and impressive gardens in the area and we welcome anyone from the novice to the expert, the small but perfectly formed back yard to those with rolling acres.

Please get in touch and let us know of your interest in joining us, including you allotment holders.

Lizzie Bennett, Joyce and Sos Armstrong
