Final fundraiser for Sidley bench

A last push towards replacing the Sidley Memorial bench was made last Sunday with a fun day at the Working Men’s club.

Saturday August 5 1989 saw two Sidley women killed at the pedestrian crossing adjacent to Sussex House - not further down London Road as reported in last week’s paper. They were Moira Honeysett and Kathleen Pruden. A local committee - Nikkie Littlejohn, Lucy Mepham and Ruth Bridger - has been working towards purchasing a new bench which will installed on Sidley Green for the 25th anniversary, and thank all for support.
