This weekend we are…

1.  Watching the Speldhurst Pram Race

This sounds so much fun!  Not entirely sure how/why this started, but love the idea of men, women and children racing prams around the streets of this lovely village each year; this year with live commentary by Richard Hoiles (better known for his horse racing commentary).  The races start at midday on Sunday, with prizes for the best looking pram as well as the winner of each race.  If you want to enter you need to download an entry form (https://primarysite-prod-sorted.s3.amazonaws.com/speldhurstchurch/UploadedDocument/c5e0054b503646958e79d87b94e64df2/SPELDHURSTPRAMRACEENTRYFORM2015.pdf).  We understand there will be food and drink on offer.  A fabulous village event!

 

2.  Cycling at the Cyclopark

Join the MAMILs or just pooter along at this amazing cycling park, with a 2.9km tarmac “road” for cyclists, BMX track, mountain bike trails, skate park and play area, just off the A2 outside Gravesend.  From £4.50 per child per cycling track (excl bike hire).  There is a cafe for well deserved drinks, food and ice creams afterwards…

Our world class art gallery here in Kent!  Free entry to this amazing gallery.  Open 10am – 6pm every day except Monday.  Tying in with Sir Anthony van Dyck’s painting in the “Self” exhibition here is an “In the Frame” art workshop for children 1 – 4pm this Sunday (cost £3.50 per child) where they can make their own self portrait…

 

4.  Catch Folkstone Creative Quarter, Wooden Spoon preserves and Macnades Fine Foods at Bluewater

The last few days to shop with these fabulous Kent businesses at their pop up shops in Bluewater.  Of course if you can’t make it there, http://www.lovefromkent.co.uk is open for business 24/7 to buy all things Kent…

 

5.  Eating at the Sevenoaks Food and Drink Fair

    So many fantastic things to do in Kent – we are very lucky to live in such a great place. Maybe see you at the Speldhurst Pram Race 🙂
