Individuals and voluntary groups from Canterbury, Herne Bay, Faversham, Northfleet, Ramsgate and Maidstone were honoured at the annual High Sheriff of Kent Awards, held this year at Leeds Castle. The Award Fund is managed by Kent Community Foundation and was set up to recognise public servants, voluntary groups and individual volunteers whose selfless acts have been of benefit to communities across the county. High Sheriff of Kent Hugo Fenwick said: “In my year as High Sheriff I’ve focused on supporting initiatives for young people who are at risk of falling into the Criminal Justice System and organisations that seek to reduce youth crime and reoffending. The Awards are a highlight and culmination of my shrieval year. I have been struck by the huge contribution that volunteers make to our communities in Kent. It is a huge pleasure to be able to honour these unsung heroes of the county.”
