It is with deep sadness that the NTCA has to announce the sudden passing of our Chairman, Cllr Ken Gregory.
Speaking from the House of Commons Sir Roger paid fulsome tribute to the Kent County and Thanet District Councillor:
Our first thoughts must be with Ken's wife, Kay, and his family for whom this sudden , unexpected and premature bereavement will have been a terrible shock and loss.
The Ken Gregory that I have known as my Association Chairman, as a hardworking local Councillor and above all as one who I am privileged to have been allowed to call my friend was a larger- than- life character. His indomitable sense of fun and humour coupled with a wonderful disdain for pomposity has made him both a formidable political ally and a fearless and tough opponent. Ken has left an indelible mark on the political landscape of Kent. He will be missed by those who loved him and those who respected him in equal measure.
