Long Bench Slat
The Long Bench is host to hundreds of special messages engraved into the hardwood slats that make up the long bench – they celebrate birthdays, weddings, special events as well as local achievements and triumphs. Many commemorate a loved one and invoke memories of happy times at the beach or in the area.
You can buy a bench slat and specify your own individual message that will be engraved into a new hardwood slat and fitted to the bench. The slat space is yours for a period of 5 years through our slat licencing scheme – standard slats cost £150 and can be engraved with 1 line of text up to 72 characters long (including spaces). We have a special renewal price if you would like to renew your slat after 5 years.
The scheme is managed through the wood department at the Aldingbourne Country Centre and people we support with a learning disability and/ or autism are actively involved in fitting your slat and maintaining the bench.
Please note slats can take up to 3 months to be installed and can be installed along the full length of the Bench, including the shelters.
