Thanks for Walking on the Wild Side with us!

15th September 2019 / 

Kenward Trust's debut event "Walk on the Wild Side" was a great success!

Thank you to everyone that came to our first public event "Walk on the Wild Side", which took place on Easter Monday (17th April ).  It was great to see so many people enjoy this free event which included; craft fair stalls, children's fun-fair, a family friendly woodland walk, chain-saw carving, cross bows and The Leeds Castle Falconry Team came along too.  

Please come back soon to explore our woodland walk and then have tea and cake in our cafe Sage & Time - open 6 days a week at The Kenward Trust, Kenward Road, Yalding, Kent ME18 6AH.  

All proceeds from the event will help fund our vital work in supporting those affected by alcohol and substance misuse.

Some feedback from visitors and stall holders:

Thank you Kenward for a wonderful Easter event!  It was nice to see such an array of unusual activities, the boys loved the woodland walk and the teacup ride, who knew you could make such intricate objects with a chainsaw!!  Beautiful grounds and the cafe was definitely popular!
Laura Parkes, Visitor

Thank you so much for including us we had a lovely time and made some money for Dementia UK.  It was an excellent event, everyone was so kind and helpful. We did enjoy the Hog Roast , the superb cake from the restaurant and I managed to buy some plants for my garden. All together an excellent event.

Fab day today, you did us proud: spot-on pitch. Worked brilliantly for us and such lovely environment too. Real #DarlingBudsOfMay stuff!

Thoroughly enjoyed a day out in the beautiful surroundings of Kenward House - a true hidden gem!  From the hog roast to the birds of prey, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and met some lovely people.
Mr Grover, Visitor

Great event! We'll be back for walks, cakes and more purchases from the shop 
Marie Tomblin, Visitor

Spent a lovely afternoon at the Kenward Trust with our two girls, 5 & 8.  They couldn't decide which was their most favourite thing, the fairground attractions, the birds from Leeds Castle, the Woodland Walk or the archery!  For me it was pottering around the craft stalls and treating myself to a delicious cookie!  Lovely place, we'll definitely be back!
