Christmas Presents 2017

Christmas Presents 2017

Our seasonal features are divided between, gifts (Christmas presents 2017), events/pantomimes and other holiday related material.Our two most popular categories are Christmas jobs and Christmas recipes. We generally put the Kent Christmas guide together in the autumn but we are open to receive submission for possible inclusion throughout the year. Over the last 15 years the quality and quantity of Kentish Christmas features has changed to reflect the needs and wants of our users, but our goal is still to provide relevant local information that informs and/or entertains. We are always interested in local material and our coverage is deliberately quirky and eclectic, we like to feature events big and small, everything from spectacular headline pantomimes to village hall Christmas productions. The same goes for our other features, anything that’s happening on your high street or community that is newsworthy with a Christmas theme is likely to be of interest to us.

Christmas Features For 2017

  • By popular demand we will by publishing Christmas Tree suggestion and recommendations, where ever possible with a local Kentish flavour.
  • We will continue to develop our Christmas Carol resources. As well as a historical perspective we examine the role and relevance of carols in the modern era and link to local choirs and carol concerts across Kent.
  • We will still feature Christmas hampers in 2017. As well as sharing ideas and suggestions we will be linking to produce available in Kent or ‘made in’ Kent.
  • Our dedicated Christmas events guide has been running for many years. We have an extensive pantomime feature, which includes some explanations about the traditions of this particular form of seasonal entertainment detailing its origins and history.
  • We will also be reviewing our features looking at how to decorate a Christmas tree, arrange a party or make brilliant Christmas light displays inside and out (featuring some of the most spectacular private Christmas light displays in the county).

Christmas Presents 2017

There is no ‘best’ present for everyone, this is something of an illusion, however we like to look at popular and inspiring present suggestions and where apposite link them to local themes and retailers. In the UK it is possible to chart the best selling toy presents into a ‘top ten’ of gifts. But even in the case of a ‘must have’ present it won’t suit everyone. If you have a suggestion or recommendation please let us know. Our feedback details are at the foot of the page.

The main industries in the north-west of Kent historically have included: light engineering, construction, cement, paper making and aircraft construction, there are oil refinery facilities on the Isle of Grain and some steel production and brick-making activity in Mid and North Kent.

There is a continued emphasis in the transport sector within the county, significant investment has taken place in the Port of Dover, London Ashford Airport.
