    Article: Jul 12, 2018

    Taylor Wimpey began acquiring the Ministry of Defence Shorncliffe Garrison site in 2015.

  • Tim Prater at Canada Day 2018
    Article: Jul 2, 2018

    Tim Prater was delighted to represent Sandgate Parish Council on Friday 29th June at Shorncliffe Cemetery at the annual Canada Day ceremony.

    As Deputy Chair of Sandgate Parish Council, Tim joined the main parade and laid a wreath on behalf of the Parish at the main memorial.

    The Canada Day Service was first held in 1919 and commemorates the 296 Canadian soldiers who died during WWI and are buried in the Shorncliffe Military Cemetery. It is marked each year by a service and the attendance of local school children laying their own floral tributes on the graves of soldiers.

  • Flyposting on street furniture
    Article: Jun 27, 2018

    Another day, another business decides that rules are not for them, and that they'll advertise their business or event on posters on street furniture somewhere in Folkestone and Hythe.

    Flyposting is illegal and, especially when done onto lampposts in the middle of the road, dangerous too. Seeing a poster is MUCH less important than seeing whats coming the other way down the road to drivers and pedestrians alike.

  • Chichester Memorial Hall, Sandgate
    Article: Jun 27, 2018
    By Tim Prater on behalf of the Trustees of the Chichester Memorial Hall, Sandgate High Street

    The trustees of the Chichester Hall want to update you or the works we have planned for the hall through to the end of the year.

    We know we have an issue with water coming into the hall on the left (North Lane) side of the main hall and also in the stairwell. Although we have had a number of survey reports etc, some of the works, and the cost, will be dependent on what is found when works start. Our budget is therefore flexible: we'll do as much as we can!
