Jools' tribute to Kent's Lord Lieutenant

Musician and big band leader Jools Holland paid a surprise musical tribute to Kent's Lord Lieutenant Allan Willett

Musician and big band leader Jools Holland paid a surprise musical tribute to Kents Lord Lieutenant Allan Willett at the end of the Lieutenancys annual conference at the Royal School of Military Engineering, Brompton. Jools, who was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant in 2006, unveiled a hidden keyboard and performed Invicta County Blues, specially written by DL Brigadier David Ralls, who accompanied on guitar. At the conference serving and retired Deputy Lieutenants from across Kent were briefed on another highly successful year for the Lieutenancy, including its volunteering in the community. Allan Willett, who retires as Lord Lieutenant this summer on his 75th birthday, said: We now have a modernised Lieutenancy, fit for purpose in the 21st century, and I am confident that we add value to the mosaic of Kentish communities. Let us now go forward together, proud of our past and confident of our future.
