Lions help vil­lage war memo­rial

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Ash­ford Lions Club mem­bers have do­nated £150 to help with the con­struc­tion of a vil­lage war memo­rial.

Vil­lagers in Ald­ing­ton, Bon­ning­ton and Hurst have been rais­ing thou­sands of pounds to­wards their Civic War Memo­rial.

Last month, Ash­ford Lions Club pres­i­dent Philip Wat­son pre­sented a cheque to memo­rial com­mit­tee chair­man David Hughes.

The memo­rial is built out of Kent rag­stone, with seats to com­mem­o­rate the reg­i­ments sta­tioned in Ald­ing­ton.

Money from the Lions club came from the auc­tion of gi­ant choco­late Easter eggs in pubs around Ash­ford.

The memo­rial will be un­veiled on Satur­day, July 2 at 11am. Con­tact David Hughes on 01233 720646 or email ab­h­warmem@ gmail.com.
