They will read their poems, sing songs and explain the significant contribution of the Indian soldiers during the war.’

COMMUNITY CENTRE: Plans for the Malling Community Centre were considered by the District Council on Wednesday October 31. There were concerns that officers were suggesting that the proposed Terrace Cafe should be closed between 6pm and 9am the next morning. The Town Council were challenging this idea. In the event, Cllr John Lamb reports, the plans for the community centre were approved without any conditions on the times that the Terrace could be used.
