Memorial Bench

If you were at the AGM last Wednesday, you'll have heard our chairman Brian Harding speak about a memorial bench at Weald Park in memory of Jeff, Alan Shirley and others. We've just received this notification from Brian:


"Arranged to go over South Weald this morning with Delia to look over potential locations.

This we did and one has been chosen not far from the Lake. 

Also delivered plaques to the Ranger.

We have arranged for a formal "unveiling" of our bench to take place at 10.30am on Thursday 9 April. We can gather at the visitors centre."

All Trotters welcome to attend

Thanks Brian
