become a community?
For community makers like Liberty, it is the social infrastructure that weaves its way through the bricks and mortar of the built environment providing the human alchemy that turns a place into a home. Together Kent County Council and Liberty have made land available for allotments, the cricket and sports pitches, wildlife trails and habitats in Warren Woods.
Liberty also donated the artificial grass pitch and provided a pavilion with more facilities, over and above its planning obligations, with its appreciation of doing more because it’s the right thing to do. It enhances the bottom line for all those invested in Kings Hill, from home owners to the local authorities and development partners.
There is nothing as British as the WI and more than 100 years of quietly changing the face of the nation with its campaigning and just plain doing. It is, of course, the spiritual home of Bake Off marquees and each year the cakes sell like, well, hot cakes at the Kings Hill Summer Festival.

It’s never too late to learn new skills and the thriving U3A group at Kings Hill is living proof of a philosophy dedicated to lifelong learning for the retired and semi-retired.
The Kings Hill third agers find it easy to reconnect to natural history while they’re surrounded by acres of open space, like this walk through the bluebell woods in their full Spring glory.
But no matter what the season, what the lecture, what the activity, a well-earned refreshment in the Spitfire pub is the perfect way to round off any class.
