Youngsters are given awards for exploring
Children exploring museums and heritage sites have been presented with awards at the Ashford Museum, Tenterden Museum and Willesborough Windmill.
Youngsters aged five to 11 can follow a map, featuring the mascot Roamin’ Rex, which guides them to any of the 25 Wheels of Time venues in Kent.
The children are given a different badge at each site which shows the site’s logo or related picture.
Once they have collected 10 of the badges they are then awarded Roamin’ Rex’s Bronze Award Badge, and when they have 20 badges they receive a Silver Award Badge.
So far, 22 children have been presented with awards in the borough’s four participating sites, Ashford Museum, the Agricultural Museum at Brook, Tenterden Museum and Willesborough Windmill.
The map can be collected from any of the sites, some Tourist Information Centres or downloaded from the Wheels of Time website – wheelsoftime.uk – where details of opening times for all of the sites can be found.
The collectable badges are free but normal entry fees to each museum or heritage site do apply.
