Otford Adventures Project is launched

  • Post category:Projects

Otford Adventures is pleased to announce that their community-based project, located at Oxenhill Shaw & Meadow, will go live on Friday 28 May. The idea behind the scheme, led by a group of Otford residents, is to encourage families to enjoy the natural beauty of the village by promoting local trails, events and challenges. 

To start the journey we have created a beautifully illustrated map that can be downloaded.  In addition, a specially printed A3 version is available from the following venues: Yvonne’s (Telston Lane – open daily) – High Street – Pond View Cafe/Denise Thompson Designer Florist (Monday – Saturday) and Hall & Co. (Tuesday – Saturday) and Ibbett Mosely, The Parade (Monday – Saturday). We are asking people to make a voluntary contribution of £2 to the Otford Society to help fund future Otford Adventures.
