17th July – BWAG Receives the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

A very proud day for all BWAG Trustees, Members and Supporters as we received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service from the Lord Lieutenant of Kent, the Viscount De L’Isle.

The celebrations wouldn’t have been complete without the Cantium Singers who gave an excellent performance. We were also grateful to many VIP guests who attended including the Viscountess De L’Isle, Deputy Lieutenant of Kent Philip Merricks MBE, Helen Whately MP, Deputy Mayor & Mayoress of Maidstone Malcolm & Brenda Greer, John Bennett CEO Kent Wildlife Trust, Neil Coombs Kent Wildlife Trust & Nick Johansen CEO Kent Downs AONB / Mid Kent Downs Countryside Partnership. Kent Wildlife Trust and the Kent Downs AONB Unit have supported BWAG throughout our 11 years – without them, BWAG would simply not exist.

Thank you to all guests and helpers who made it such a special occasion and a day to remember.
