Create art to win tickets to Port Lympne Reserve

Create a piece of artwork that captures your community and you could win a family of four ticket to Port Lympne Reserve.

NHS Ashford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Kent County Council (KCC) are running an art competition inviting local people to create a piece of artwork that represents local towns and communities.

Artwork should focus on one of three areas: North Ashford (including areas in the north of town and Wye, Sellindge and Charing), South Ashford (including areas in the south of town and Kingsnorth) and Rural Ashford (including Tenterden, Hamstreet and Woodchurch).

The competition is open to everyone from the CCG area. There are three age ranges for the competition: under 12s, 12 to 17 and 18+.

Dr Caroline Ruaux, CCG lead for community services, said: “The art competition is part of launching our work around developing community networks. We hope people of all ages will want to get involved with the competition and the networks.
