Winner, Kent Women in Business Awards

It’s been just over a week now since the superb evening we spent at Kent Women in Business Awards, a beautiful 3-course meal in the magnificent surroundings of the Mercure Great Danes Hotel Maidstone, amongst the most fabulous and inspirational women in Kent.

St Ethelbert’s Harvest Festival with a twist.

Expecting a usual Harvest Festival assembly at St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School Ramsgate, I was surprised to be presented with a piece of paper with a red tomato on one side and a green pepper on the other!
