Contributed by editor on Feb 04, 2005 - 05:59 PM


Work is set to begin on the Hawkinge Giant and Strange Cargo Arts Company are hoping many villagers will help get the project off the ground.

The company will be artists in residence in the village over the coming three weeks building the Giant for the village.

They are inviting residents to come along to their temporary workshop base at the Leisuredrome in Aerodrome Road on Wednesday 9th February between 5pm and 6.30pm, to hear more about the Hawkinge Giant project, and to find out how they can get involved.

The project is funded by the Hawkinge Partnership and the MakeItReal initiative and will culminate in the Giant, and three Big Heads being created. These figures will become permanent residents in Hawkinge, able to represent the village at festivals, fetes and gatherings at home and further afield.

If you would like to find out more, call Brigitte or Lisa on 01303 244533.
