The Lord Lieutenants final Civic Service
Canterbury Cathedral was the setting for this years Civic Service led by the Lord Lieutenant, Allan Willett CMG.
It was attended by 1,200 people involved in community life from every part of Kent.
Allan, who is due to retire as The Queens representative in Kent on his 75th birthday this August, thanked everyone attending for their community work without which, he said, the county simply would not function.
He said the repositioned, modernised Lieutenancy today attends and leads some 700 events each year and added: No one is more proud than I am of our lovely countys extraordinary history. But however proud of it we are, the past is the past. The really important thing is the future. Let us go forward together, proud of our past and confident of our future.
