Holborough Lakes five victims get police help

By Alan Smith

The victims of the Holborough Lakes fire have been given a little comfort from Kent Police.

The force is donating £500 from its sale of unclaimed lost property and seized items to help support a special community day planned for residents on the estate near Snodland.

Community Support Officer Kim Lidbury presented the cheque to Robin Dod of the Holborough Lakes Residents Society.

A blaze ripped through a number of flats at the estate in September last year. Fortunately no-one was injured, but many residents are still in temporary accommodation while they wait for their homes to be rebuilt.

PCSO Lidbury said: "Many families had to leave their homes following the fire, which caused considerable damage to a number of flats in the Holborough Lakes area.

"I’m absolutely delighted we have been able to now contribute to an event, which will hopefully help bring residents together and bring some enjoyment to families who have endured some very difficult challenges over the past year."

The Kent Police Property Fund distributes money from the sale of unclaimed lost property or items seized during police operations. Money raised is distributed twice a year, to local groups which provide a service to communities in Kent.
