Campaigner steps down
A community campaigner has stepped down as chairman after seven years of service.
Chris Morley, pictured right, was a key figure behind the Kennington Community Forum, which is set to become a community council in 2019.
He championed issues such as rebuilding the dilapidated Spearpoint Pavilion, installing the Trim Trail, and bringing back the Bybrook Nature Reserve.
The announcement has been made in the March edition of Kennington News, and secretary Sandra Dunn says Mr Morley will be missed for his keen eye for detail and tenacity to stand up for residents. A woman had to be treated by paramedics after a car hit a road sign in Canterbury Road at the junction with Cemetery Lane, Ashford, at 11.20am on Sunday.
A witness said: “A car has crossed a pedestrian crossing point, knocking down a lamppost, before coming to a halt with the lamppost still trapped beneath the car.”
It caused minor delays for drivers on one of the main roads in and out of Ashford town centre.
A police spokesman said: “We were called at 11.15am on Sun- day, April 2, regarding a report that a car had struck a sign on the central reservation in Cemetery Lane, Ashford.
“Police officers and South East Coast Ambulance Service went to the scene where a woman received medical attention.”
