Garden events aim to entertain
AN ARCHERY coach aimed to help entertain visitors to a popular garden on Sunday – and despite heavy showers he managed to hit his target.
Adam Kenyon, from Sittingbourne Community College, was at Doddington Place Gardens to show people some of his skills and invite them to have a go.
The club trains students to county and national level and boasts a British Junior Champion within its ranks.
Jo Holmes, from the gardens, said: "It's much more difficult than the guys from SCC make it look.

"Despite the awful weather on Sunday our visitors were able to have a go – in-between the rain showers – and the event is very popular."
The archers will return for the Diamond Jubilee Royal Funday on Tuesday, June 3 and again on Sunday, June 17.
The gardens will host a farmers' market offering Kentish produce and crafts next month.
The market, in conjunction with Kent Farmer's Market Association, will run on first Sunday of every month from May, 6 to September, 2.
It will be open between 11am and 2pm, so visitors can also enjoy the gardens, a falconry display at 3pm and special extra events which run throughout the open season.
Tickets to the gardens cost £5 and £2 for children. For more information call 01795 886101 or visit www.doddingtonplacegardens.co.uk
