    Pensford Field and The Kew Society Summer Picnic Party

    We are delighted to be joining forces with the Pensford Field Environmental Trust for our summer party this year.

    We will have live music during the afternoon from local bands, children's story telling, a Pimms bar and the chance to catch up with friends and enjoy the surroundings of this wonderful area, lovingly conserved for future generations.

    Bring a rug and your picnic, and lots of spare change for our raffle.

    We are hoping to raise much needed funds for the leaking roof in the studio, a valuable space used by schools and local groups for environmental education.

    Tickets are £5 per adult and children up to & including 16 are free.

    Bring your neighbours, friends and family but unfortunately not dogs due to the wildlife.
