Highlighting the inspirational activity flourishing among the young people of Kent is the Lieutenancy's main aim in 2010

Highlighting the inspirational activity flourishing among the young people of Kent is the Lieutenancys main aim in 2010 and speaking at the Lieutenancys annual Civic Service at All Saints in Maidstone, the Lord Lieutenant, Allan Willett, said it was a year of significant anniversaries, including the 70th of both Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain. More than 650 civic leaders, county, district, borough and parish councillors, community volunteers, representatives of the magistracy, the emergency and health services, the business, media, education sectors and youth organisations from across Kent attended the service. Among them were members of the wartime Home Guard, Auxiliary Fire Service, and Bletchley Park code-breakers, most now in their 80s and 90s, whose service has recently been recognised by the award of special badges.
