This is the third board to be installed at appropriate locations around the town.  The others cover the history of the Barracks and the Bedfordshire Regiment on a board installed outside the Barracks in Bedford Road, and a history of Kempston High Street on a board at the War Memorial near Lidl.


The Saxon Centre board was unveiled by Deputy Kempston Mayor, Councillor Carl Meader.
