    Creepy crawlers, t-shirt tie-dying and pebble painting. West Kent’s youth team really know how to put on an event.

    Nearly 200 people came along to the free event on Tuesday 6 August at the Minnis in New Ash Green. One happy Dad commented “thank you for a great day, my son loves his tie-dyed t-shirt”. The tie-dying stand was by far the most popular and the team quickly ran out of t-shirts.

    Ross Brotherwood, Youth Coordinator for the 8-12s programme, and responsible for organising the event, commented, “It was a very good event that was well attended. We welcomed almost 190 young peopleNew Ash Green family fun day, and many brought their families. it was a massive success.” 

    West Kent has been working with young people from ages 8 to 19 in New Ash Green for many years and has built strong relationships with them and the wider community. The event was organised in response to a request from the Parish Council. 

    The next event is on Tuesday 20 August from 10am-2pm at the Minnis where there will be Creepy Crawlers, arts and crafts,  including pebble painting, paper marbling, inflatables and t-shirt tie-dying. For more information see our events page.
