Mayor’s message to South Korean community

The Mayor has issued this message of support to members of the Korean community that may have been affected by the ferry disaster that occurred off the coast of South Korea on 16 April 2014.

On behalf of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, I would like to express my sympathy and condolences to the Korean community for the tragic sinking of the Sewol ferry off the coast of South Korea on the 16th of April.

I know that many residents in New Malden and other parts of the borough will have connections to family or friends in South Korea who have been directly or indirectly affected by this tragedy.

Our thoughts, sympathy and support are with you all in these sad times.

Councillor Penny Shelton, Mayor of Kingston upon Thames
