As the Chairman of the Lord Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on the Magistracy in Kent, the Lord-Lieutenant was delighted to welcome the new Magistrates at their Swearing in Ceremony at Maidstone Crown Courts.

The long history of the Magistracy is that of selfless service by members of the community. The Lord-Lieutenant was pleased to witness the immense pride of these individuals. Taking on this role requires a huge amount of commitment, fairness and reliability and the Lord-Lieutenant thanks them for taking on this important role in the County.
