Scorching Summer BBQ

photo 2What a fantastic day Sunday was! Not only was the weather a scorcher, the YLF annual summer BBQ was once again a great success with thanks to funding from Kent People's Trust!

It was good to see so many volunteers and young people attend on Sunday - over 80 people joined in the fun! The young people (and adults!) showed their skills on our Gladiator jousting, inflatable assault course and their circus tricks as well as involving themselves with some face painting, football, rounders and tennis to name just a few of the things we got up to.

A really big thank you to our chairman Clive and his wife Sue for allowing us to use their beautiful garden and facilities for another year.
