DONATED pebbles have helped to spruce up the Shoreham Airport Community Memorial.

Mayberry Garden Centre in Portslade, has been supporting the project, which provides a community memorial dedicated to all British, Commonwealth and allied servicemen and women who lost their lives during the two world wars.

Part of the Tates family-run group, the garden centre provided white pebbles to brighten and revive the display.

Martin Barrett, retail manager, made the bulk delivery and gave the trustees a helping hand to redress the beds.

He said: “Being a family business, supporting and being involved in the local community is very important to us. We like to get involved in projects that can be enjoyed by our customers and this group is a perfect example.”

Allan Fowler, a member of the trustees, said: “The trustees are extremely grateful for Martin’s personal assistance and for Tates’ support as a company.

“As a small charity, with minimal funds, Tates have made a huge difference to our community project.”
