Chairman of Kent County Council, John Davies and his wife Christine, hosted their third and final area reception at Thanet College in Broadstairs. The annual event gives KCC cabinet members, county members and senior officers the chance to meet local businesses and leading partners from voluntary organisations involved in the life of east Kent. The Chairmans theme this year was Backing Kent Business and his area receptions have all focused on this and encouraged people to back Kent businesses in the economic downturn. John said: The College was a wonderful venue for my East Kent reception. The students showed they have the potential to be first-class ambassadors of the college and the skills of all those in the kitchen, front-of-house dining room, reception and floristry were highly commendable.
