Jono Brough, chairman of the Elsea Park Community Trust, said: “The idea was discussed in a board meeting and we looked at what land we owned.

Jono said: “The Queen has served an unprecedented 70 years as monarch and this is a once in a lifetime for everybody.”

The bench is now available for everyone to


“I look forward to seeing how this place will flourish in years to come,” Jono added.
