Tunbridge Wells talking point


If you live in Tunbridge Wells your life expectancy could be ten years longer than in some other areas of Kent, a survey has revealed.

Released by the Consumer Data Research Centre, the survey shows a colour-coded map highlighting the different levels of life expectancy. In some areas of Kent, such as Margate, the life expectancy for those born between 2009 and 2013 is less than 75, but in Tunbridge Wells the expectancy is one of the highest in Kent at 84.

And, in the surrounding areas of Bells Yew Green, Frant and Groombridge, the life expectancy is even longer at 87 years or more.
