It’s not very often that the blog features photos of people, but today a group of sixth formers came to Grosvenor and Hilbert park as one of the locations in a film they are making. They are part of a new group called SAFE for Kent, and this is an excerpt of the statement on their website:
“What is safe?
Safe stands for Suicide Awareness for Everyone and is a new youth-led project. Safe aims to raise awareness of mental ill-health among young people generally, offer peer support, improve knowledge of where to go for help, help young people to recognise the danger signs and ultimately to reduce the occurrence of youth suicide.”
The video explains how it is good to TALK rather than keep your problems and worries to yourself, and hopefully will be shown at local secondary schools and be available to view on You Tube.
Credit for the filming goes to Samuel Marlow, local writer-producer-director, and founder of the Tunbridge Wells Electric Lantern Festival, who can be contacted via tumblr
Having our local park used as a film location is something we hope won’t be a one-off.
