Lessons in Love – podcast launch

Very excited now to be publishing the first episodes of Lessons in Love, a podcast that Funder Films has been working on with #ageUK in East Kent. I’m publishing two episodes today – with Pat and Alan, and with Dawn and Christine. You can hear their interviews here: https://www.buzzsprout.com/2090801

As you will hear, I’m encouraging people to make donations to the AgeUKs that have taken part. All of this week’s participants attend AgeUK Herne Bay and Whitstable and you can find the Just Giving page here:

Platinum Jubilee Filming

We’ve now recruited 8 young people to make films about the #PlatinumJubilee celebrations in the borough of Ashford. Many congratulations to Asa, Brooke, Ellie, George, Kaden, Megan, Nathan and Sam – and many thanks to @sk8side for helping with the recruitment.

We have also matched each young person with a project to follow: the Ashford Tree Trail (Kaden), the Big Lunch in Ashford (Nathan and Sam), Kent and East Sussex Railway and rocking horse exhibition in Tenterden (Brooke and Ellie), various events in Appledore and Hamstreet (George), and the Woodchurch Carnival (Asa and Megan). Many thanks to all the organisers who have agreed to be interviewed about their preparations. #letscreate @Arts Council England @Kent Community Foundation

Funder Films visited a planning meeting for the Woodchurch Carnival to make a training video for the project. Many thanks to Pat Byrne for your help with this.
