Dear Residents,

Our regular author is away on his honeymoon for a couple of weeks. We wish him and new wife all the best.

There is an event coming up this Thursday, 6th April, 2pm at the Council Chambers that you should all try and attend if you're not working or caring for your children:

THE SPRING HUSTINGS,  6th April, 2pm. Council Chambers, Civic Centre, Castle Hill Avenue, Folkestone CT20 2QY 


ARRAN HARVEY LAB. (Folkestone East)




TIM PRATER LIB DEM (Cheriton, Sandgate & Hythe East)

This is your chance to pose questions to the above candidates who will be standing in the County Election on the 4th May 2017. 
Six districts within Shepway have a number of candidates standing to be newly and re-elected. By now, you would of all had your voting cards stating in which district you will be voting in. The official notice of candidates has yet to be published, but we can tell you that David Monk will be standing in Folkestone West and Susan Carey is standing again in the Elham Valley Districts. 

Our Association is openly discouraging residents from voting for these two existing Councillors based upon their history of being of unrepresentative of the majority of constituents views on major issues across Shepway.

It is unfortunate that the Conservative party won't be represented at the Hustings as I'm sure that many of you would want to raise certain issues pertaining to the proposed Lorry Park and other contentious areas. Both Councillors Monk and Carey are members of the Conservative party.
Our Association would like to thank the four candidates for taking the time to engage in open debate and look forward to hearing their proposals for making Shepway Residents voices stronger and louder at County Hall.
