We hope you enjoyed the 22nd annual Create Music Festival! Read our roundup of the free music extravaganza, which saw 12,000 people attend and dance the day away to a packed line-up of music and entertainment.

In other news, congratulations are in order because Ashford’s historic Victoria Park has been awarded a £167,000 development grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery Fund. In addition, Tenterden’s The Old Dairy Brewery have just received a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor for their Brewery Tours. Well done!

We have some great feel-good community stories too; read about the Kent Challenger Games where youngsters enjoyed a day of sports, and find out about Kestrel Park, a brand new Iron-aged themed play area that opened a few weeks ago. What’s more, find out details about a new play area coming to Hamstreet.

The borough is embracing growth with its ambitious plans for the future. Now’s your chance to view the current consultations and voice your opinion on various upcoming projects including the Draft Local Plan, the Heritage Strategy and a community development strategy for Chilmington Green.

Elsewhere in this month’s issue, read about how works on Elwick Place officially began and watch a time-lapse video of the progress made so far. Speaking of videos, check out our new video blog feature called ‘Ashford Voice Meets’.

There’s also plenty of great summer events listed in our What’s On section, including a special feature on fun family events happening at Singleton Environment Centre.
