Shout­ing about the tank cer­e­mony

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Weeds Shame -

My wife, Gill, and I were men­tioned on last week’s Time Cap­sule page (Proud day tank rum­bled into town) at the tank cer­e­mony while I was Mayor of Ash­ford.

That was a unique event and on re­flec­tion I have al­ways won­dered whether I should have hired a Town Crier who I had met the pre­vi­ous week while on hol­i­day.

He lived in Sus­sex, and was an ex­tremely colour­ful char­ac­ter who would have added a novel fea­ture to Ash­ford’s day of cel­e­bra­tion. John Hol­land, The Limes, Kingsnorth
