Shouting about the tank ceremony
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
