Tylden Reed Becomes Charing Palace Trust’s Sixth Trustee

Charing Palace Trust is delighted to announce that Charing stalwart Tylden Reed has agreed to join the Trustee team.

Tylden moved his home and business to the parish in 1971, he was a founding member of the Christmas Lights Committee, the chairman of Charing Traders Committee, Trustee of Charing Scout Group and a Governor of Charing C of E Primary School for several years. He is Vice President of Charing and District Local History Society and has been a strong and tireless supporter of the restoration of the Palace for the community since the 1990s.

Tylden became a parish councillor in Charing in1984 and has been its chairman several times. He has been its chair of planning committee for almost all of those years and has represented the council in several external groups and committees. He tells us he hopes to remain on the council until at least the next election in 2019. After 53 years in the horological trade, the youngest ever Fellow of his trade Institute and its youngest Executive Council member, Tylden plans to close his business in 2018, and focus even more on making the Charing Palace Project a success.

Commenting, Keith Adams, Charing Palace Trust’s Chair said:

Tylden has been a member of our Steering Group (now the Palace Project Team) since its inception. His breadth of knowledge and experience of Charing, along with his range of contacts in the locality and in local and regional government, tireless enthusiasm and limitless passion to see a restored and revived Palace make him a great and valuable addition to the Trustee team.
