Elmer comes to town

Later this year Maidstone will have a fantastic display of 42 colourful Elmer the Elephant sculptures around the town and we are delighted to be sponsoring one of them and helping to raise funds for the Heart of Kent Hospice.

In the run up to the elephants being decorated there is a programme of activities taking place, with a parade and the elephant herds including baby elephant sculptures displayed in The Museum, Library and shopping centres.  Twenty five local schools will also be getting a baby elephant sculpture to display.

The Elmer the Elephant Trail will go live in mid-June and there will be several weeks to spot them all around the town.  A farewell weekend will be held on 4-6th September with them all displayed at the Lockmeadow Market Hall, before they are auctioned for charity on 9th September.

The trail is expected to bring thousands of visitors into the town centre and will create a real buzz.  We can’t wait to meet the artist who will be decorating the Gullands’ Elmer and revealing what it will look like!
