Snowdogs magic begins at Chilmington Green

15 June, 2018

The Chilmington Green team is delighted to announce it has selected two talented artists to create designs for the Snowdogs that Hodson Developments has sponsored.

The exciting initiative, run by Ashford Borough Council, sees local businesses, groups and individuals sponsor Snowdogs sculptures (themed on The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, the animated sequel to Raymond Briggs’ classic story The Snowman™).

Each sponsor has chosen an artist to partner with and design the artwork for the sculpture. Chilmington Green has sponsored two Snowdogs, and the chosen artists are Deborah Woodward and Kathryn Jordan.

Both artists are based in the south east and have now taken delivery of their Snowdog sculptures! They’ll spend the summer designing their Snowdogs before the big reveal later in the year. The finished sculptures will be displayed around Ashford Town Centre between September and November 2018. A special ‘Snowdogs Trail’ will also be launched so children and families can enjoy the magic of Snowdogs in the lead up to the festive period.

Alan Hodson of Hodson Developments, said: “We are all very excited to see how each design will progress and can’t wait to see the finished Snowdogs. Whilst I cannot say too much about the artwork at this stage, the designs we selected reflect the environmental and open space living theme of Chilmington Green. Watch this space!”
