On becoming Lord-Lieutenant in 2011 we updated the then existing website instituted by Allan Willett my predecessor. Technology moves on at an alarming pace and after six years we have found it necessary to refresh our existing website to enable it to be used with greater ease on tablet computers and smartphones. It has also been an opportunity to add social media accounts to allow better communications with younger members of society.
It is our aim to keep the people of Kent informed of what the Lieutenancy is doing and signpost people to the national Queen’s Awards for Enterprise and Voluntary Service, all of which are recognition of how well organisations are leading the way. We are lucky to have a large number of SMEs across Kent and Medway, I am certain that the recognition would do much to enhance a Company’s reputation as any winner of the award will testify.
We are blessed with many people who give their time willingly to help a whole variety of causes. Many of our volunteer groups measure up to the national standards set for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, if you are up for the challenge we are here to help you through the process of applying.
