Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements - by Anna Flock­ett

A NEW wooden cross has been erected on top of St Fran­cis Church in Cryol Road, South Ash­ford.

It re­places the orig­i­nal cross, which had been in place for nearly 50 years, but fell apart two years ago.

The cross has been paid for by a cou­ple who are due to be mar­ried at the church later this year.

The new Priest in Charge of Christ Church and St Fran­cis Church, the Rev An­thony Hirst, was due to be li­censed by the Bishop of Dover in a cer­e­mony at St Fran­cis last night (Wed­nes­day).

A dance school is branch­ing out. The Ten­ter­den-based Feet Beats Dance Academy, run by Amy Mead, will open its new branch at the FTD Dance Cen­tre on the Hen­wood In­dus­trial Es­tate in Ash­ford just af­ter Easter. The dance school is for girls aged five to 16-plus and spe­cialises in cheer­lead­ing. Miss Mead said: “Chil­dren will learn all the cheer ba­sics, rules, chants and when ready and fit will learn stunts and tum­bling, with ex­tra gym­nas­tic work­shops to help learn flips.” For more in­for­ma­tion call Miss Mead on 07854 381575 or email Feet­beats@hot­
