Kilburn shoppers get a well deserved rest

New bench is unveiled outside Lloyds TSB

Older shoppers can have a well deserved break after a new bench was unveiled in Kilburn.

It is the last of three benches installed in the Kilburn High Road after pensioner’s charity Kilburn Older Voices Exchange (KOVE) campaigned to have better public seating in the busy street.

Mel Wright, Kove Coordinator, said: “Kove is delighted that Lloyds TSB has agreed to let us have a bench outside their branch in Kilburn High Road.

“Older people can get pretty tired shopping along Kilburn High Road and it’s an ideal spot for them to have a rest.

“It also helps make Kilburn a nice place to be and with the other two Kove benches that have along the road, offers a place for people to sit and have a chat.”

The bench was erected outside Lloyds TSB bank after the Times published Kove’s campaign.
