DANCE guru and star of Strictly Come Dancing hailed the re-launch of the Gravesend Reporter as 'strictly marvellous' this week, writes assistant editor Michael Adkins.
Len Goodman who lives in Ingress Park, Greenhithe, has a long association with the Reporter and sister paper the Dartford and Swanley Times.
He is currently splitting his time between his home and the bright lights of America where he is busy filming the US version of the hit series.
Len was a regular visitor to the Reporter's first office in Harmer Street where he would pull out a few dance moves for the receptionists as he placed adverts for his studio in north Kent.
From today the Reporter, that was founded more than 150 years ago, will be delivered to thousands of homes in the borough and for sale too at a credit crunch busting 25p. The 65-year-old star said: "Local papers, especially free papers, are very important for news and advertising and now more people can see the Gravesend Reporter.
"I am a big punter for free papers, both for the news and the advertising opportunities available. Look at the Toy Appeal the Gravesend Reporter ran last year, it got a lot of support and this could be even bigger next time with more people seeing the paper. It is certainly a change for the better."
He recently backed the re-launch of the Dartford and Swanley Times and supported the Christmas Toy Appeal in aid of Darent Valley Hospital last Christmas.
Len found fame with the BBC series Strictly Come Dancing, pitting professional dancers and celebrity partners against each other.
This month he released his autobiography, Better Late than Never.
