Sunny days for Kent Life lunch at Howfield Manor

Blue skies and sunshine blessed Kent Life's first lunch of the year to celebrate its key supporters.

Blue skies and sunshine blessed Kent Life's first lunch of the year to celebrate its key supporters. Advertisers from the east of the county, editorial contributors and co-partners gathered together at Howfield Manor in Chartham Hatch to enjoy an outdoor reception followed by a luncheon based on local produce. Guests were welcomed by Angela Smith, Area Advertisement Manager and Editor Sarah Sturt, and Catherine Lloyd, who is in charge of events and marketing at the family-run hotel near Canterbury, told guests a little of the history of the hotel, which dates from 1181. She also revealed that the delicious meal was enhanced by herbs, salad leaves and edible flowers from their own kitchen garden. Group Publishing Director, Suzanne Heaven, gave the vote of thanks to Catherine and her team from the 1181 Restaurant for a splendid meal and hospitality, and guests were later able to tour the lovely gardens.
