A New Commemorative Bench

Swanley Town Council have installed another commemorative bench by the War Memorial, opposite the one installed in 2020 to honour 75 years since VE Day.

This was made possible by a generous grant received from the Local Recovery Fund from our Kent County Councillor Perry Cole.

Councillor Perry Cole officially opened the bench on the 20th October and said “I am thrilled and delighted to have been able to provide a bench to commemorate the men, women and animals who lost their lives in the service of their country during war”.

The unveiling was attended by The Mayor of Swanley Cllr Paul Darrington, The Mayor’s consort Cllr Glynnis Darrington and the CEO of Swanley Town Council Ryan Hayman.
