About the Team

Tonbridge Town Team is a group of dedicated volunteers with a wide spectrum of professional experience and views, established as a result of the Portas Review published in 2011. Our aim is to help make Tonbridge a vibrant and exciting place to live, work, visit and do business. We aim to help link together businesses, local government, charities, clubs and the population as a whole. By working together, we aim to build a sustainable and prosperous town that draws together and maximises the potential of all its citizens.
There are lots of organisations, businesses and individuals who are doing fantastic things in Tonbridge. We want to celebrate their achievements and work with them so they can make even more of an impact. We encourage innovation and entrepreneurialism building on the community spirit that exists in Tonbridge and the surrounding area.
We recognise that Tonbridge is better off in many ways than many towns up and down the country. But we also recognise that many of our fellow citizens struggle. Our vision is an inclusive one that values all members of our community and seeks to build bridges and enable all to prosper.
By working together and concentrating on what we can do rather than what we can’t, by being open to new ideas and matching enthusiasm with patient resolve we can continue to make our community not just a good place to live, but a GREAT place to live.
