The Lord Lieutenant, Allan Willett, the Vice Lord Lieutenant, Lord De L'Isle and the majority of the Deputy Lieutenants recently spent a rural awareness day at Hadlow, one of the UK's leading land-based colleges.


Following a welcome by the principal, Paul Hannan, The Lieutenancy was given a scene-setting presentation by Mark Lumsdon-Taylor, the college's director of finance and resources. After referring to some of the pressures Kent's rural sector faces, Mark spoke of the emergence of the many new business and career opportunities it offers.


The Lieutenancy toured part of the college campus, including the award-winning dairy unit and the state-of-the-art animal management unit that is currently being constructed.
