February 2020 News for
Tunbridge Wells

February Fact
In Old English terms, the Anglo-Saxons named February as ‘Solmonath’, which means month of cakes, mud-month, as the Gods were offered cakes in the February season.

It was also called ‘Kale-monath’ or ‘sprout-kale’ by the Saxons, which is the name for cabbage and its sprouting.

Sunday Parking Initiative

We have looked to continue supporting our wonderful retailers until the end of February. To this end we have invested in advertorial support both print and online including a homepage takeover at Kent Online and have a strapline currently running here to give shoppers even more incentive to visit Tunbridge Wells.  

Jules, manager of COOK Tunbridge Wells said:"I absolutely would like it to continue. Sundays are more consistent now and footfall is up. Shoppers are also far more relaxed with more time to spend shopping."
