Mick Jagger in Dartford Park

A Rolling Stone in the Park

Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones frontman), a VOX amplifier (invented in the town), and a Dartford Warbler (first spotted on Dartford Heath) have been left standing alongside a park bench in Central Park, Dartford.

The bench is located next to the Darent Valley Path, just beside the entrance to the Ecology of Colour project.

Pupils from Dartford Grammar School entered a competition to create pictures of the rock star to be used on the bench.  Competition winner, Ben Pimenta, helped to unveil the bench on March 13 with Cllr Jeremy Kite, Leader of the Council, who seems to be creating an area of art and culture in the park.
