Get­ting peo­ple to­gether

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Community Fun Day -

Hun­dreds of peo­ple en­joyed a com­mu­nity fun day or­gan­ised by Tesco Park Farm in Kingsnorth on Sun­day.

The event, which marked its third year at the week­end, raised cash for Di­a­betes UK and the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion.

Chil­dren’s fair­ground rides and in­flat­a­bles fea­tured at the fun day, which in­cluded more than 30 stalls on the play­ing field off Church Hill.

The store’s com­mu­nity cham­pion John Per­rin – who has taken over from Marie Rus­sell – hailed the event as a suc­cess.

“It was the big­gest one we have done so far,” he said.

“We had a record num­ber of stalls and vis­i­tors, but the rain did stop play at 1.30pm as the weather did clob­ber us a bit.

“But we still raised £1,300 be­tween 11am and 1.30pm so it was very good go­ing.

“I would like to thank all of the stall­hold­ers and com­mu­nity for their sup­port.”
