The plaque was housed in a former public house in Kemsley which is now a development site. After lengthy community consultation, and identifying local funding sources to build a new case in which to house this historic plaque, the Memorial Plaque is now in its new home – The Holy Trinity Church, Milton Regis.
The Reverend George Rogers, Vicar of Milton Regis with Murston,Bapchild and Tonge will officiate at a service led by the Bishop of Dover to mark the installation of the plaque, and the Mayor will attend. The short service will be followed by the regular community lunch in the Church Hall.
