The Archbishop of Canterbury hosted a special Collaboration for Community Regeneration and Growth event to which KECC’s Gurvinder Sandher MBE DL was invited to attend. The event took place on Tuesday 26th March in Maidstone and was also attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Kent Lady Colgrain, Mayor of Maidstone Cllr Gordon Newton and KCC Chair Cllr Gary Wood.

The event was an opportunity for key figures in the county to come together and highlight the positive community work taking place in their boroughs and to discuss ways in which further work could be done by fostering new partnerships and relationships for the overall benefit of Kent.

Gurvinder Sandher MBE DL, CEO of KECC commented, “It was a great honour to be invited and have an opportunity to talk to the Archbishop about community cohesion and the work we do across the county, breaking down perceived barriers and celebrating cultural differences as well as shared common values.”
