The Kent Website since 1999
Our current news, stories and events are below. We have been running Kent business features and news for over a decade. In that time user feedback has been central to developing and improving this content. If you have a local story or feature or if you'd like to draw our attention to some Kentish success we'd welcome your email, our contact details are at the foot of the page.
If you'd like some idea of the criteria we use for selecting news and features, check out our published guidelines on the archive page. We tend to look out for content with a strong local flavour and at least 500 words of readable copy.
