winning medals in multiple events in the same championships. Large numbers of
our athletes were picked to represent Kent and other counties during the season,
a sign of the strength in depth that we have in some events.

introduced Julian, he gave an inspiring talk that was enjoyed by the audience.
After the awards everyone enjoyed the party afterwards, the disco and photo
