A memorial service is to be held for much-loved MidKent College principal Sue McLeod.

Ms McLeod died at Medway Maritime Hospital on July 23, just a month after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, prompting an outpouring of grief and tributes from those who knew her.

Her funeral will be held on Thursday, August 28. It will be a private service for family and close friends only.

This will be followed by a public memorial service at Rochester Cathedral, led by the Dean, the Very Rev Dr Mark Beach.

Sue’s partner, Alan and her daughter, Lucy, have said anyone who would like to attend is welcome to join them.
