A LANDOWNER has stepped in to solve the prob­lem of park­ing at the kmfm char­ity foot­ball match at Home­lands on April 26.

The game, which in­cludes play­ers from Sky’s Soc­cer AM pro­gramme, is ex­pected to pull in a crowd of 3,000.

Kevin Hughes owns the land, along with his fa­ther who owns Ash­ford Minibuses. The field is next to the sta­dium, which is home of Ash­ford Town.

kmfm pre­sen­ter John ‘Webbo’ Web­ster, who is help­ing or­gan­ise the event in aid of Clic Ser­gant and the Pil­grims Hospice, said many tick­ets have al­ready been sold.

He said: “The re­sponse has been over­whelm­ing. Park­ing be­came a mas­sive prob­lem, but Kevin has stepped in to save the day.”

Tick­ets, £7.50 for adults and £3 for chil­dren, must be bought in ad­vance and are avail­able from Home­lands on match days and from the Ken­tish Ex­press and kmfm re­cep­tion, Ex­press House, North Street, Ash­ford.
