A former Ashford councillor who helped created the borough's museum has died.
Charles Pye Oliver was ward member for Hothfield (including Westwell) between 1979 and 1991.
He was also chairman of the Ashford Borough Museum Society for 25 years, from its inception until standing down in 2009.
He died on Wednesday, June 4.
