Elmer’s Big Art Parade, Maidstone!

The Elmer Parade celebrates 30 years of the

Heart of Kent Hospice.

Like all art, the Elmers are supposed to be thought-provoking and reflect beliefs.

The St Simon Stock Catholic School Elmer is installed in the Royal Star Arcade in Maidstone. If you get a chance to visit it, please do so.

Our Elmer is painted in different styles to reflect the international backgrounds of the students and staff at our school.
