Legal aid

The Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge & District Law Society (TWTDLS) annual dinner took place at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells on Friday November 18. Established in 1933, TWTDLS – which is sponsored by TN Recruits and Newman Business Solutions – represents anyone involved in the legal profession, including solicitors, paralegals and trainees practising and living in West Kent.

The evening was hosted by the Society’s current President, John Spence, a Property Litigation Partner at the Tunbridge Wells-based law firm CooperBurnett LLP. When he was named as President earlier in the year, he said his biggest goal was to ‘wave the flag for our Society, raise its profile locally, get even more local lawyers engaged and make it even bigger and better’. The Dinner was indeed ‘bigger’ with 195 people attending.

The guest speaker was Iain Dale, the LBC radio broadcaster, writer and political commentator, who delivered what a TWTDLS spokesperson described as a ‘fascinating insight’ into the world of political broadcasting.

The event raised nearly £1500 for Demelza Hospice Care For Children which is John Spence’s chosen charity for his presidency.
