I have had a great week and one of the highlights was going to Willesborough Junior School.
During the past few weeks pupils in Year 5 have been taking part in the Citizenship Foundation’s Go-Givers Make a Difference Challenge and they invited me along to see what they had been up to.
It all stemmed from a school trip that the children recently went on. They visited the nearby river and were really upset to find it was dirty and the area was covered in rubbish.
They decided to do something about it so they split themselves into a communication team, an ICT Team, a drama and arts team and came up with ways of encouraging people not to drop litter. They have also been taking it in turns to go and collect rubbish from the site and have collected more than 30 bin bags so far. They are doing such a great job and I was so impressed to see what a difference they had made in such a short amount of time! Keep up the good work!
Thank goodness the sun has decided to finally arrive – better late than never! I must admit, I overindulged a bit last weekend, but thankfully after a few bottles of aftersun, my lobster-red skin has now gone a shade of orange – at least it’s nearing a tan!
And it’s been great to hear from you about the ways in which you have been enjoying the gorgeous weather. Thank you to everyone who has been tweeting pictures and details of your days out to @kmfmofficial. Keep them coming in!
Can't wait to see you at the county show
It will be a busy weekend for the team at kmfm, as all of the DJs will be heading along to the Kent County Show.
The tree day event starts at the Kent Showground in Detling on Friday, July 12, and we will all be there throughout the weekend to meet listeners and take part in some of the activities.
It looks like there will be sunny weather, unlike last year when the heavens opened.
I can't wait to get stuck in? Make sure you say hello if you see us!
A talented teenager!
One of the highlights on this week's show was getting to talk to teen singer Gabz.
You might remember her from this year's Britain's Got Talent, when she wore her trademark onesie!
The 14-year-old finished seventh in the ITV contest which was won by shadow dance troupe Attraction last month.
But she wowed boss Simon Cowell with her songwriting skills on the telly talent show and has just released her self-penned debut album Lighters (The One).
When I caught up with Gabz, she said she was really excited to hear her own song on the radio, and that she can't wait to get back in the studio and write something new!
We had a great chat and I really hope her music career takes off.
