George White, Chief Executive Martha Trust and Councillor Jeremy Watts with his wife Susie
To commemorate its 25th Anniversary, Martha Trust in Deal threw a very English garden party complete with cream teas and croquet.
Around 60 people joined the celebrations including residents of Martha and their families, supporters of the charity, volunteers and local dignitaries.
The success of a Zumba fundraiser to raise money for a Pilgrims sky dive in March has inspired Deal fitness instructor Paula Murphy to do even more charity events and hoping now to raise enough money to trek the great wall of china for Pilgrims and Cancer charities.
Paula has already been using her expertise in aid of Pilgrims Hospices, but thanks to the support she received from keep-fit enthusiasts, she now wants to hold a series of fitness events.
The School holidays are upon us and the Astor are offering a unique experience for 12 – 16 year olds – Destination Imagination. For one-week from 6-10 August, there will be workshops where participants have the opportunity to write, film and crew their own short film whilst learning about filmmaking. Participants will get their own DVD copy of their film as well as participation in a special screening at the Theatre for family and friends. And for aspiring thespians age 7-11, there will be an opportunity to stage their own play, invent characters and design their own set and costumes at the Twisted Tales workshop from 30 July to 3 August
