The recently elected Chairman of Kent County Council, Bill Hayton, hosted his civic reception in the Darent Room at County Hall. The annual event gives those involved in the county's administration from across political and geographical boundaries the opportunity to meet and talk in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

Those invited included all civic dignitaries from around Kent as well as local authority leaders, chief executives and the countys MPs and MEPs. High Sheriff of Kent, Peregrine Massey, was in attendance as was Deputy Lieutenant, Bill Cockcroft, DL. The Chairman announced that his theme for the year was going to tie in with the Lord Lieutenants theme of youth but that he would focus on youth affected by disability. He hopes to host a number of charity functions throughout his year to raise funds for charities that tie in with this theme.
