What is Spotlight?

From community services and sports clubs, to support groups and children’s activities, it can be hard to find out about everything in the area that local people can access. Spotlight is an ambitious project that aims to be the answer to that very problem by strengthening communities and bringing people together, linking them to the activities and services that they are looking for.

Spotlight's mission is to connect people across Folkestone, Hythe, Romney Marsh and the Kent Downs with the hundreds of activities and services that are available locally.  It is an online directory where people can search for groups, activities, hobbies and classes that they are interested in. Spotlight is free and easy for communities to use and provides a platform for even the smallest organisation to reach the thousands of people in our district.

Disclaimer

The listings on Spotlight have been submitted by members of the public who operate activities and services within the local area, and also by citizens who want to help publicise the local groups that are available to the people in our district. Therefore some information submitted may become out of date or inaccurate. To minimise this, listings are verified every six months. Each listing displays the date it was last updated. Please refer to the disclaimer in our footer, and also the Terms & Conditions.
