A flyover by Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance will be among the attractions at the Wealden Times Midsummer Fair next month.
The three-day show is to be held on June 6th, 7th and 8th at Hole Park, Rolvenden, featuring gorgeous goodies for home and garden, fashion, jewellery, and artisan food and drink.
Royal Tunbridge Wells estate agents Knight Frank has kindly sponsored this year’s event and has chosen the Air Ambulance as its Charity of the Year.
A flyover by the life-saving helicopter is planned for Saturday, June 8th, between 12noon and 2pm - subject to emergency call-outs.
There will also be a collection in aid of the charity on all three days and an opportunity for visitors to meet volunteers and find out more about the Air Ambulance.
Head of Corporate Relations Cheryl Johnson said: “With an expected crowd of some 8,000 – 9,000 from Thursday to Saturday, this will be an ideal opportunity for us to highlight the life-saving work we do in the community.
“We are enormously grateful to Knight Frank and the Wealden Times for their support.”
Knight Frank’s spokesman Andrew Harwood said: “We are thrilled to be sponsoring the Wealden Times Midsummer Fair this year – something of a tradition and a fixture in the calendar for many people.
“The fair gives us a chance to showcase what we do and to heighten awareness of this very worthy charity.”
