The Kent Miners Festival celebrates an important part of our community's history. It was impressive to see so many local groups such as the Snowdown Colliery Brass Band, Invicta Fencing Club and Aylesham and District Boxing Club taking part.
Betteshanger Sustainable Parks, on the site of the old colliery was a good location for the festival, and I look forward to seeing the festival there again next year. Betteshanger Sustainable Parks, along with Hadlow College plans to create a space for sustainable business, education, energy and tourism on the old colliery site.
Congratulations to everyone involved for organising such a fantastic family day out, especially the local organisations in the health and wellbeing tent who gave up their time to give out valuable advice to members of the local community.
