Kent views to brighten your day

A few words from Visit Kent during #COVID19

Dear friends,

We know that there is a huge amount of uncertainty right now. We also know that the reason you usually come to our channels is for a dose of inspiration, a hint of escapism, and ideas on the very best ways to spend your free time across our county.

Making a trip out of the house to explore will be difficult for many of you over the coming weeks, and we want you to stay safe. But, here at Visit Kent we are still committed to sharing with you everything that’s great about our little corner of the world.

That’s why you may see some changes to the content we’ll be posting; with more of a focus on supporting our local businesses, sharing a few things to look forward to, and providing a little distraction during times where you may be stuck indoors.

We’ll be championing Kent’s independent businesses, keeping you up to date with great stories from our community – and above all else – continuing to share incredible photos from across the county which we hope will put a smile on your face.

Got ideas of content you’d like to see from us? Maybe a local hero you think deserves a special mention? Get in touch at enquiries@visitkent.co.uk

Our number one priority is, and always will be, sharing Kent’s unique story. A story that we are all part of. So, look after your neighbours, put the kettle on, and let’s work through this together.

Stay safe,

Deirdre Wells OBE – Chief Executive, Visit Kent
