Hangleton and Knoll councillor remembered at community fun day
10:00am Tuesday 11th September 2012 in News
A bench has been unveiled to mark the life of a former councillor and allotment champion.
The bench dedicated to David Smart was unveiled at a ceremony featuring deputy mayor, Ann Meadows, at Hangleton Park, on Saturday.
Mr Smart, who was a former Hove police officer, served as a councillor for the Hangleton and Knoll area for three years before his sudden death in December 2010.
Children creating street art on the day also created a piece dedicated to Councillor Smart’s memory.
The bench unveiling was part of the first Hangleton Fun Day.
Hundreds of residents attended the event, which featured large outdoor games, a barbecue and a cake sale.
Councillor Dawn Barnett said: “We couldn’t have asked for a better day. David was such a fantastic councillor and he was part of a fantastic team of councillors we had.”
