The 60th anniversary of the Coronation of HM Queen
The 60th anniversary of the Coronation of HM Queen will be celebrated on Sunday 2nd Jun 13. While no special events are being planned nationally, it is hoped Thanksgiving Church Services will be held on that day, across Kent.
The AGM was followed by a reception and lunch which gave everyone a chance to network and catch up with colleagues from across the county.
