  • Rubbish bags piled on waste bins
    Article: May 20, 2021
    In Email to Cabinet Member for Waste and Officers

    I know this is part of a regular series of emails from me, but there are a lot of things not well in the world of bin emptying and rubbish collection in Sandgate at the moment I'm afraid.

    The seafront is currently regularly getting strewn with rubbish *again*, and although I have local residents crying out for bigger bins. The issue is that AGAIN they are being emptied too infrequently, and AGAIN the system seems to have reverted to someone who empties and leaves the bags on or by the bin, and then some hours later, sometimes the next day, the bags are being collected.

  • Trudy Dean
    Article: Apr 30, 2021

    Trudy Dean sets out some of the challenges which Kent County Council needs to address to help all children and young persons get the best start in life.

    The Liberal Democrats believe that the financing of Education in the UK is too heavily skewed toward Secondary Education at the expense of the all-important formative Early Years and argue for greater funding of Early Years settings. There is a particular need for greater focus on speech development and creative play for children from poorer backgrounds to try to ensure that their life chances are not limited from the start.

  • Cheriton, Sandgate & Hythe East County Election Result 2017
    Article: Apr 22, 2021

    The County Council elections are not JUST about getting a Councillor who works hard through the year, keeps in touch, and gets things done (although I hope, and think, I am that Councillor).

    EVERY vote for Tim Prater in the Kent County Council Elections in Cheriton, Sandgate and Hythe East will send a clear message to the Conservatives: this is NOT over. This IS personal. We CAN still Save Princes Parade.
