A former Green Party leader will join an anti pollution fair.
Natalie Bennett will take part in an question and answer session at a Green Thinking Fair.
The event, by Dover and Deal Green Party, is from 1.30pm to 4pm on Saturday, February 23, at St Richard's Church Hall in Mill Hill, Deal.
Ms Bennett will answer audience questions at 3pm alongside ward councillor Mike Eddy.
The topic is What Future for Kids.
The day,will also include children's activities, live music and an art workshop.
Music is from the Seaward Band and local artist Penny Beardman will create portraits for local families.
Fellow artists Pam Cutler and Kath Love will run an art workshop using recycling plastics collected from beach cleans to highlight the damage done to sea environment.
Visitors can also try out reflexology, a massage-based therapy on the feet and hands, and upcycling, which is transforming unwanted products such as old furniture into new materials or products.
Children will be able to make animal masks or can volunteer for facepainting.
Ms Bennett was the leader of the Green Party of England and Wales from 2012 to 2016.
Cllr Eddy is a member of both Dover District Council and Deal Town Council and has been a Mill Hill councillor since 1995.
He was DDC Labour group leader until he joined the Greens last November.
DTC has started a publicity campaign against engine idling and air pollution outside primary schools.
Members agreed to launch this at their full council meeting on January 28.
Campaigners from Dover and Deal Green Party did air quality monitoring outside primary schools last winter, and provided evidence to DTC.
The council will contact schools to invite them to a meeting on March 12 to decide on arrangements for the campaign.
Cllr Eddy said: “Leaving car engines on when a car is stopped, produces air pollution which is very damaging to children’s lungs and to older people in poor health."
