ENTHUSIASTIC children enjoyed the first Wild Wednesday at Canterbury Garden Centre, Herne, last week. Free activities had been organised with Owls AboutTown and Penfolds Reptiles and there were also pony rides, clowns, balloons, crafts, and clues to follow on an activity trail with prizes to collect at the end.
Whitstable and Herne Bay Lions Club provided a variety of crafts; owl bags and masks proved to be very popular with the young artists. Lions? representative, Alwyn Lindley said: ??We were delighted to see so many families enjoying the event. Although the Lions make no charge, we are most grateful for the donations people give and value the opportunity this gives us to talk to the youngsters about the work carried out in the community by the Lions. We receive many requests for support, and whilst we may not always be able to help, we strive to do the best we can. Applications can be made to Christine Ward, chair of community services, on 01227 771068. The Lions will be here for all the Wild Wednesdays in August, and we look forward to meeting more young visitors.
