Memorial to Former Hangleton Councillor a Wonderful Tribute

Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, attended the unveiling of a bench in honour of the late Hangleton & Knoll councillor, David Smart.

At the centre of Hangleton’s first community Fun Day on Saturday 8th September, was the dedication to David Smart. Hundreds of residents turned up for the action-packed day which was held in Hangleton Park. As well as the ceremony for the memorial bench, residents enjoyed outdoor games, rock climbing, and a barbecue.

Commenting, Mike said: “David was a dedicated community champion as well as a keen gardener. This bench is a wonderful tribute to David, who loved the outdoors, his allotment and above all, helping others. The sheer number of residents who have come out to see the unveiling is testament to his popularity as a councillor for the area.”
