Preserving & Promoting Southborough & High Brooms' Heritage

Commemorative Plaques

During 2011/12 the Southborough Society commissioned a local potter to produce ceramic plaques to commemorate important/notable people who have contributed to society. These plaques have been placed on the property where the individual once lived. The first eight listed were unveiled in 2012 and the next six in 2013. The following four in 2014.

We would like to express our thanks to the householders who allowed them to be placed on their houses, and our thanks also goes to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council for their financial contribution to this project.
