Kentish Express Ashford & District - - MARKET PRICES COUNTRYFILE -

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.ken­tish­s­ or phone 01233 813307.

A new Ash­ford Green Cor­ri­dor leaflet is now also avail­able, pro­vid­ing a range of walks in and around the town.
