Following her election as President at Kent Law Society’s AGM, Vanda James hosted the 198th annual dinner at the Mercure Maidstone. Her 250 guests included many distinguished figures from the county, including the High Sheriff of Kent, Deputy Lieutenants, the Assistant Chief Constable, judges, lawyers and their guests. Vanda recently became a partner at Cripps LLP (with offices in Tunbridge Wells, Kings Hill, Sandwich and London) and has been a family lawyer for more than 20 years. On behalf of the Society, Vanda has chosen to support Guide Dogs as the charity of the year; the Maidstone Mobility team based at Turkey Mill looks after approximately 110 guide dog owners in Kent. Guests took part in a game of Heads & Tails, which raised just under £600 for the charity. The formalities of the evening were followed by a disco with guests dancing well into the early hours.
