Broadcast on Thursday 30th June 2016. Our show guest was Justine Miller, PR Officer for the Knockholt Carnival Charities Committee (KCCC). Many residents and workers in small town of Knockholt are currently beavering away to produce their amazing costumes and floats for the carnival parade which will be taking place on Saturday 9 July 2016. The small committee of 7 people meet regularly in the public houses around Knockholt to make plans for a truly great event. The carnival has been running for 65 years now and is still going strong. The support of other residents from the other neighbouring towns as well make putting on such an event possible – although they always welcome new members.
Road closures will be in place in Knockholt on the day from 11.30am and following the parade there will be entertainment, stalls, music and much more in the main recreation ground. Entry is £1.00 for adults and children go free. Collections for local charities will also be taking place throughout the day and the two main charities benefiting from this particular event will be West Kent Mind and a women and children’s refuge in West Kent which provides safe housing and support for victims of domestic violence.
