Sport­ing way to cel­e­brate

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

More than 1,000 peo­ple at­tended the Fam­ily Fun Day at the Julie Rose Sta­dium.

The event was held last Satur­day to cel­e­brate the 20th an­niver­sary of the sta­dium open­ing as well as to pro­mote the re­cent work that has been done on Con­ning­brook Lakes.

The free event had a huge range of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing ca­noe­ing, sail­ing, pad­dle board­ing, zorb­ing, cy­cling ac­tiv­i­ties and ath­letic train­ing ses­sions for vis­i­tors to par­tic­i­pate in along­side plenty of food and drink stalls by the lake.

The fun day was con­sid­ered to be a huge suc­cess and a great way to show the pub­lic the va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties both the lakes and the Julie Rose Sta­dium has to of­fer.
