Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate all of the winners and finalists and everyone else who entered this year’s Awards. The standard was exceptionally high which made the job of the judging panel a very difficult one indeed.

After the awards ceremony it has become customary for guests to have an evening of surprise entertainment. As guests leave, each year they say, “Not sure how you are going to beat that!” and this year was no exception. Guests were entertained by the exciting Comedy String Quartet, who had the audience entertained from start to finish.
