It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Alison Burt, Kent's Press and Publicity Officer, after a short battle with cancer.  Our thoughts are with her husband Peter and their family. 

Any donations should be made to the Hospice in the Weald who gave great comfort and support to Alison and her family in her last few weeks.  Please click here to be taken to their website.
