25 Years of Kent History

Every year, Kent hosts the 25 Year Lunch, which celebrates and recognises the contribution of staff members, who have been with the University for a quarter of a century!
This year, the Lunch was held on Thursday, 20 October, with the Vice-Chancellor hosting for the final time before her retirement next year. One of the invitees, Dave Pilbeam, Deputy Head Chef, cooked the lunch and then joined in the celebrations once service was over. The VC’s office reported that ‘a thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all.’
