Fun activities on a green that people are trying to protect from housing development, will see residents and friends enjoy a day of amusement.
To celebrate St George’s Day, the Dovers Farm Estate community group committee have organised a family fun day.
The event will place on Sunday at the Dovers Farm Estate green, off New Zealand Way, Rainham, from noon until 4pm.
Last year, more than 100 residents took part and enjoyed activities including egg and jelly races, a game of rounders, hook a duck and face painting.
Committee secretary, Matt Stanton said: “People should come along to enjoy the open space and get to know their neighbours and join in all the activities, have a nice time and celebrate the day.
“We will use the occasion to show the council how much we value the space and how many people want to keep using it and keep enjoying it.”
People will also be able to enjoy the musical delights of singer-songwriter Yvonne McDonnell and those in a competitive spirit can choose Team George or Team Dragon and take part in a game of tug-of-war.
