The Records Centre does a small amount of community work each year. As we are now a staff of four, our ability to find time to talk with community groups is reduced. However it is an important aspect of the work we do and as such we try to get out into the community as much as possible.

Probably the biggest community event we're involved with is Kent Goes Wild!. An annual event conceived by KMBRC in 2004, which is designed to be a platform for recording groups and societies to share with interested people the work they do.

We also attend an event at Detling Showground called Living Land. An event run every year which introduces children from across kent to all aspects of the environnment from organic food and farm animals to kent's native wildlife and recording.

We also work closely with the BBC Breathing Places campaign, and we can provide recording packs with recording advice and information about Kent's recording groups to those individuals or groups in Kent who have signed up to start a breathing place.

Look out for us at your local event, or if you hold an event that you'd like for us to attend then please get in touch.
