The Ash Archive: Kent’s Special Relationship With The Ash Tree
When: Monday 19th February – Friday 23rd February 2018
Where: Jarman Building, University of Kent
The Canterbury Campus of the University of Kent is hosting an interesting exhibition this week. The Ash Archive will display objects, artwork, literary pieces, and drawings by both local and national artists.
All of the works displayed were created with the Ash Tree in mind. It’s not uncommon for people to feel connections with the natural world, but many have felt deep connections with the Ash Tree. So this exhibition celebrates our relationship with the natural world, and aims to reflect on the uncertain future of the Ash Tree.
Bore Place Volunteer Day
When: Thursday 22nd February 2018, 10am-3pm

Volunteering is a great way to get out and about, meet new people, and do your bit for the community. So if it’s something you’re interested in, why not volunteer at Bore Place this Thursday?
You’ll team up with other like-minded volunteers, to repair and maintain the walking trails. And in exchange for your time and efforts, you can tuck into tea and biscuits afterwards!
