A cremation for family and close friends has been arranged for 2.45pm in Vinters Park for Alan Bennett (63) of Bourneside Terrace who died in Maidstone Hospital on 20th October. The cremation will be preceded by a church service at 1.30pm and followed by a reception in the Village Hall. Additional parking for the church service will be available at the Cardwell Pavilion.
The Cooperative Funeral Service (Tel 753033) is making the arrangements for the funeral.
No flowers by request but donations to All Saints’ Church and the Project 100 scheme to plant 100 trees on Hollingbourne Meadows Trust land to mark the centenary of the end of WW1 are invited. Both causes were close to Alan’s heart. A retiring collection at the end of the church service will be shared equally between the two causes.
