Chinese New Year 2020

Once again, the streets of Chatham came alive to celebrate Chinese New Year and to welcome in the Year of the Rat at the annual Chatham parade.   The parade started at Church Street and travelled down the High Street to Military Square, to the delight of the crowds who had patiently waited to catch a glimpse of the dancing lions and dragons.  Once at Military Square, the Mayor of Medway, Cllr Habib Tejan and the Chinese Embassy man addressed the crowd before the performances started.  Groups performing included: The Medway  Dragon Dance Wilmington Association Dancers The Lion Dance (from Medway’s twin town Foshan in China) Dance Alley Shi Kon Martial Arts Thanks to the Kut-O Chinese Association and Alison Plummer for arranging such a fabulous event
