The Friends of The Downs is a new community group of local residents who have joined forces with the Council to protect, preserve and enhance the Downs. The Friends will be a focus for the future care and management of the
Downs area, to ensure that the area is well looked after and continues
to support its natural flora, fauna and wildlife for the benefit of
local residents and visitors alike.
The recent campaign to make the Downs a village green attracted huge local support, showing how well-loved and important the Downs are to the town. The Friends aim to build on that affection by working with residents, the Council and organisations like Kent Wildlife Trust and the Kent Reptiles and Amphibians Group to make the most of this unique open space.
