Press for Lunch

Met Bernard Ginns, Editor of UK Free Newspaper of the Year Kent on Sunday today. We had agreed to meet for a working lunch in my office, the idea being to understand each other a little better.

Kent on Sunday have been supportive champions for many of the issues raised by Kent County Council - supporting our campaigns on Government funding going north, on TV licence waivers for older people in recuperative care, and on Government paying KCC its Asylum debts.

So it was interesting to discuss some of the issues affecting Social Care in Kent, the financial pressures, and the ways in which we could work together to raise the public awareness.

I was very grateful to Bernard for popping in, and look forward to a warm and positive relationship.
