Large Snowdog sculptures, inspired by the animation film, The Snowman and The Snowdog, have been spotted playing hide and seek around Ashford town centre, ahead of the world-class public art trail landing on the 12th September.

Ashford’s station is fortunate in being able to welcome Patch and Sakura this Sunday. The dogs will be boarding for ten weeks, bringing colour and fun and attracting many visitors and delighting the Southeastern passengers.

At the end of the trail all 35 Snowdogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Pilgrims Hospices. The sculptures are designed by local and regional artists, alongside 19 small Snowpups created by local schools.

“We are very grateful to Ashford Borough Council for enabling us to look after these stunning sculptures and to be part of this magnificent experience and trail” commented Michelle Harris, Station Manager, Ashford.
