THE POLKA Dot has reopened

We had amazing PV on Sunday for our reopening The local Visual Arts Group 795 are displaying loads of original and exciting works and turned up in full to support us. Thank you to everyone who came especially the Deputy Mayor Ben Stokes and Deputy Mayoress Sylvia Bennett who popped in to have a look round.

The Polka Dot this year is packed with weird and wonderful items at very reasonable prices. See you all soon.

Our new Temporary Garden visits Vinspired

4th March Vinspired organised a celebration event to showcase & recognise the work of young volunteers in Kent & Medway and we where invited to do workshops. This is now the end of Vinpired as we know it. I personally would like to say they have been amazing and the biggest thank you ever to Rachel Coppins who has been a real inspiration herself.

The Polka Dot took its new temporary garden out for the first time we can now do workshops anywhere!. Loads of plastic rubbish flowers and trees - we think it was a great success so look out for us in Swale and across Kent.

Plus we had a very special guest Magma came to visit he his Sparkys big brother
