Residents are invited to a jam packed free family day out to celebrate living in Medway.

Medway Council organised four new local festival days in 2018 to mark 20 years since the founding of Medway and to celebrate community identities. The Focus On events are designed for local people and highlight all that is great about each area.

This year’s first Focus On Festival will be held at Cozenton Park, Rainham, on Saturday, 18 May, from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Visitors can watch top class in-line skating, scooter, skateboard and BMX demonstrations and get involved in coaching and competitions with Team Extreme. People of all ages can also have-a-go with balance bikes and mountain bikes with Action Wheels.

There will also be a flower fair with stalls offering a range of plants, flowers, garden necessities and ornaments.

The popular climbing wall will also return this year as well as the bandstand with live music and performances.

The Strolling Gardeners twin brothers Bob and Tom will be out and about greeting visitors at Cozenton Park. On their travels they will help the balding to sprout hair, help children bloom and treat others to a ‘fun filled five a day’.

Test your uni-cycling skills in the Big Top Hullaballoo with circus workshops including tightrope walking and juggling. There will also be live circus shows and crafts.

Free fun day out for all the family

Dawn Hudd, Assistant Director of Physical and Cultural Regeneration at Medway Council, said: “Focus On Rainham will be a free fun day out for all the family with plenty of activities for residents of all ages to enjoy. I would encourage residents to come along and celebrate their local communities.”

Other Focus On festivals will be held in Walderslade, Strood and Hoo later on in the year.
