THE DUKE: at the the show on the first day

THE Kent Show will get a royal seal of approval this year with a visit by the Duke of Gloucester.

It will be the second time in two months the Duke has visited the County Showground at Detling, near Maidstone. He also attended the Kent County Agricultural Society’s Living Land event in May.

During his visit to the Kent Show on Friday, July 15, the Duke will be accompanied by the Lord Lieutenant of Kent Allan Willett and the society’s president, Lord Astor of Hever.

The group will meet showground manager David Goff who will take them round the Food Expo, and spend time with the Kent Army Cadet Force and the Wolf Conservation Trust.

He will also present long service awards to Ernie Lovell from Linton-based EG Butcher and Sons, Laurence Long from the Hinx Hill estate in Ashford and Kenneth Britt from the Hole Park estate in Rolvenden.
