The going is going to be good this Easter weekend, as point-to-point returns to Aldington, near Ashford.

The Aldington Races have delighted families for almost six decades and will feature racing as well as attractions including terrier racing, bale throwing, tug of war, falconry displays and a funfair.

Sponsored by Furley Page and Strutt & Parker, the meeting is on Easter Monday, April 22, with the first race at 2pm.
