Kentish Express Ashford & District - - ROUNDABOUT -

MILK choco­late bun­nies and Cox ap­ples will be the prizes at an Easter egg hunt or­gan­ised by the KM Walk­ing Bus Project. Fam­i­lies in­volved with the walk­ing buses are be­ing in­vited to take part in the hunt at Ton­bridge Cas­tle on Satur­day, March 31. Cases of fruit are be­ing pro­vided by Kent dis­trib­u­tor World­wide Fruits and Gaskain’s Farm, in Sell­ing, near Faver­sham. Cof­fee and tea spe­cial­ists Whit­tard of Chelsea are do­nat­ing 1,000 Lindt choco­late bun­nies. The com­pany has shops in Ash­ford, Can­ter­bury, Blue­wa­ter, Tun­bridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Lake­side and is due to open one in Chatham in April. Draw prizes are also be­ing pro­vided by walk­ing bus spon­sor Ring­way, which is pro­vid­ing a games con­sole for the free chil­dren’s draw and a DVD player for the adult draw. The event will end with a bal­loon race or­gan­ised by char­ity spon­sor Denne Con­struc­tion. Steve Maxwell, mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor of World­wide Fruits, said: “We are de­lighted to sup­port the Walk­ing Bus. “It is an im­por­tant scheme to im­prove chil­dren’s road safety skills and re­duce traf­fic.” Sup­port­ing the event also gave the firm a chance to pro­mote English ap­ples, he added. “English ap­ples score top marks for taste, but us­ing pro­duce grown closer to home also re­duces the trans­porta­tion costs and the im­pact on the planet,” Mr Maxwell said. Fam­i­lies want­ing free tick­ets to the event should go to the event ticket sec­tion of the Walk­ing Bus web­site at www.kent­walk­ing­ For de­tails about the Walk­ing Bus Project, call Neville Dack on 07970 979004 or visit www.ken­ton­­ity
