Get close to nature with fun activities
ASHFORD Green Corridor’s season of free events for children to encourage them to get closer to nature starts soon.
An afternoon of lanternmaking is held near the Victoria Park Fountain on Monday, June 4, from 2pm.
The Whole Hog Arts company will lead the session with the Kentish Stour Countryside Project to celebrate Local Nature Reserve Week. Youngsters will learn about creatures that like the light and will make nightlights to take home.
This will be the first of many events being held in the Ashford Green Corridor over the summer.
Project officer Emma Griffiths said: “There is plenty to keep the children busy this summer and keep them out of mischief.
“It’s the time of year children can get outside and have some fun.”
Full information on this and other events being held this summer by the Ashford Green Corridor project as part of the Kentish Stour Countryside Project, is available from her via e-mail at www.kentishstour.org.uk or phone 01233 813307.
A new Ashford Green Corridor leaflet is now also available, providing a range of walks in and around the town.
