Fifti­eth cel­e­bra­tions go up a gear

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

A Yald­ing char­ity put the wheels of its 50th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions in mo­tion with a clas­sic car show on Sun­day.

Petrol heads were able to ad­mire a range of vin­tage ve­hi­cles at the Ken­ward Trust’s head­quar­ters in Ken­ward Road, where there were 70 cars on show rang­ing from a 1930s Austin 7, to two Ford Mus­tangs, a Daim­ler Dart and a Tri­umph TR7.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion has been help­ing to re­ha­bil­i­tate peo­ple with drug and al­co­hol ad­dic­tions since 1968.

The cel­e­bra­tion in­cluded craft stalls selling pro­duce grown or made by Ken­ward res­i­dents, a chil­dren’s fun­fair; face paint­ing; and the trust’s al­pacas.

Penny Wil­liams, the new Ken- ward chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: “We were de­lighted to welcome the clas­sic car own­ers and many oth­ers, young and old, to an­other ex­cel­lent event in the se­ries we are or­gan­is­ing through­out 2018.

“We are con­fi­dent that Ken­ward will pro­vide top qual­ity, pro­fes­sional care and sup­port for those in re­cov­ery for many years to come.”
