Sporty day out at church re­lay

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Summer Fun -

Vis­i­tors to a church’s summer fes­ti­val moved through zones of ac­tiv­i­ties as they tried sports, lis­tened to mu­sic and played games.

Ash­ford Bap­tist Church’s Re­lay Com­mu­nity Fes­ti­val, now in its third year, was de­signed to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether and there was even free food on of­fer.

A sport zone fea­tured welly wang­ing, a penalty shoot out and gi­ant skip­ping rope and hoopla games while tod­dlers had their own zone with a ball pit and ride-on toys.

There were craft and chill out zones, live mu­sic, tug of war matches and a com­pe­ti­tion to name a World Cup foot­ball as well as face paint­ing, stalls of­fer­ing nail art and more.

Co-or­gan­iser of the event at Ash­ford’s North Park, Ali­son O’Don­nell said: “All the zones were re­ally suc­cess­ful and every­one had a good af­ter­noon.

A lot of peo­ple said they in­tended to come along for a lit­tle while and ended up stay­ing for the whole event.”
