A great show of com­mu­nity spirit

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Fun Day For Families – And For Dogs -

Hun­dreds of peo­ple at­tended a com­mu­nity fun day run by Tesco Park Farm.

It took place on Sun­day, a day free of rain for the first time in weeks, at Kingsnorth play­ing fields off Church Road.

Pony rides, a dance show, a raf­fle and games helped to raise £908.75 for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion and Di­a­betes UK.

Marie Rus­sell, the store’s com­mu­nity cham­pion, said: “It was a huge suc­cess, we be­lieve that 300 or more peo­ple at­tended and the weather was this time glo­ri­ous.

“The amount raised shows we have such an amaz­ing com­mu­nity.”

The fun day was at­tended by Ash­ford Deputy Mayor Ge­orge Koowa­ree and Deputy May­oress Glo­ria Cham­pion.
