TLC Stoves and Liners


Hildenborough village and rural parish is in the Tonbridge and Malling borough. The village is just 10 miles from the Biggin Hill airfield and witnessed a number of incidents during the Second World War. Child refugees were accommodated in Hildenborough and villagers saw many a dogfight between RAF airfcraft and the Luftwaffe. These days, the village continues to be self sufficient and hosts a number of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants.

The village of Hildenborough boasts two famous sports celebrities – Sir Henry Cooper, the former heavyweight boxer known for his powerful left hook, and for knocking down Muhammed Ali in his younger days, was a resident. Dame Kelly Holmes, the double-gold medal athlete, has also been an inhabitant for a number of years. Sports is an interest for the wider community with three football teams linked to Hildenborough Athletic FC. There is also an annual road race which has taken place for 30 years, organised by the Hildenborough Road Races. Leisure pursuits for youngsters abound in the other ways, with scouts and also some fantastic activities by Hildenborough Church.    

Competent Person Registration Scheme - HETAS

The installation, replacement or any alteration to the position of a solid fuel combustion appliance (wood burning stove) is subject by law to building regulations. Competent person schemes were introduced by the Government in 2002 to allow individuals to self-certify that their work complies with these regulations; as an efficient alternative to notifying the local authority or using an approved inspector. I am part of such a scheme - see below - which gives customers reassurance that my work is legally compliant.

HETAS is the official body recognised by the Government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses. To achieve this objective, HETAS operates a registration scheme that supports installers and businesses involved in this area to work safely, efficiently and within the various regulations which apply to the work involved.

TLC Liners and Stoves is HETAS registered and, after commissioning your wood burning stove, a certificate will be issued.
