An organiser of a May Day parade hopes a disappointing turnout at a workshop will not dampen spirits.

Chris Reed, of Big Fish Arts, invited children and parents to make flowers and decorations at Restoration Youth, Trinity Road, Sheerness, on Thursday, April 16.

The items are to be included as part of celebrations in the town at Beachfields, off Royal Road, on Saturday.

Mrs Reed is planning to visit local beavers and scouts groups to make musical instruments with them before the parade.

She said: “If anyone wants to get involved that would be lovely because in other places like Rochester they have massive celebrations.

“Hastings has massive celebrations as well and there isn’t a particular tradition on Sheppey.”

n Anyone who would like to get involved in the parade can call Mrs Reed on 07775 712306.
