Vic­to­rian wel­come at party

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Homes -

IT’S not of­ten jour­nal­ists get a thank you but that’s what hap­pened when Visit Kent chair­man Amanda Cot­trell hosted a Christ­mas party for them at her Chal­lock home. The party was held to thank lo­cal, na­tional and Euro­pean me­dia for their con­tin­ued sup­port of Kent and Visit Kent over the past year. The event had a Vic­to­rian theme to tie in with the release of the new Sher­lock Holmes movie filmed al­most en­tirely in Kent. The Visit Kent board and team wore Vic­to­rian cos­tumes to wel­come guests through real snow, ac­com­pa­nied by a stilt­walker and fire-jug­gler. To­gether with Visit Kent part­ners, in­clud­ing Kent County Coun­cil mem­bers, nearly 70 jour­nal­ists en­joyed a tra­di­tional sing-along and va­ri­ety of live acts through­out the evening, while din­ing on Whit­stable fish and chips and plat­ters of mince pies and fresh fruit. Amanda Cot­trell said: “We wanted to thank all of our friends in the me­dia for their sup­port over the past year.”
