We operate a number of licences allowing local groups and clubs to enjoy the Estate’s green spaces for outdoor activities and to pursue their hobbies.
Our licence holders enjoy a diverse range of leisure pursuits, meet some of the groups and clubs below.
Tonbridge Radio Flyers
The Tonbridge Radio Flyers have been using a site at Somerhill since 2004 and meet every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday to fly their model planes. The group was first formed in 1967 by a small group of dedicated areomodellers with the aim of bringing together people of similar interests in the Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks areas. http://tonbridgeradioflyers.bmfa.org

Invicta is a Helice shooting ground near the A21 on the Hadlow Estate which hosts various shooting events, including local, national and international competitions. Helice shooting is a form of competitive clay pigeon shooting and claims to be one of the most challenging shooting disciplines there is!
