As we say a fond farewell to Aylesham and a welcome hello to Tilmanstone, I am pleased to announce our Kent Miners Festival is on the move again.
2013 is the Centenary of Coaling for Tilmanstone Colliery and following the successful celebrations in 2012 for Snowdown, we are excited to start organising many special events throughout next year, joining with surrounding villages, groups and businesses to celebrate Tilmanstone’s Centenary Year.
We have already formed a new committee with new Trustees and a volunteer team that will work tirelessly to put together another free event for our communities on Bank Holiday Monday, 26th August 2013.
Mixing some old with the new, we will make this another festival to remember.
More youth involvement is being pursued by Ken Buxey, Deal & Walmer Lions Representative and Sarah Handley, our Youth Development Manager. So if there are any youth groups or individuals who want to take part in any way please contact them.
Also, I am delighted to announce that we have teamed up with East Kent Railway, which, along with our Mining Heritage Exhibitions, will bring something very special to the festival.
