    Having had an email from a local resident over the weekend about the state of the footpath that runs from Ross Way to Ferne Way in Sandgate, I've popped up there this afternoon to have a look...

    And its in a HORRIBLE state. Rubbish everywhere, evidence of flytipping, bags: even a fridge. All this on footpath HF21 at Ross way: ironically the home of the KCC Civic Amenity and Recycling Centre,

    Like many local residents, I wasshocked to see in the papers that a Shepway District Councillor has called those campaigning against the development of Princes Parade "out of touch".

    Those campaigning against the development of Princes Parade are doing an excellent job and deserve to be supported, not ignored.

    MILITARY ROAD RECREATION GROUND

    Sandgate Parish Council is considering renaming Military Road Recreation Ground to better reflect the improvements which have been, and are to be, carried out to the park and to highlight its value as a community asset to the whole village.

    The park has previously been named Chichester Park, and other suggestions from a previous exercise to rename included Golden Park and Field of Dreams. Councillors also suggested Sandgate Park: but perhaps you have a much better name!

    We are now asking for any other nominations for a new name to be put to a community vote in late March / early April.

    To suggest a new name please email clerk@sandgatepc.org.uk or visit Sandgate library and speak to the parish clerk.

    All suggestions will be considered by Sandgate Council and a shortlist, which will include as an option the current 'Military Road Recreation Ground', will then be put forward to the community vote.

    Suggestions that are obviously offensive or unacceptable (Shepway District Council have to accept the final name) won't make it to the shortlist. For the avoidance of doubt that includes Parky McParkface - sorry!

    Closing date 10th March 2016.

  • Overhanging tile
    Article: Feb 23, 2017

    You may have noticed scaffolding has appeared around 15 Sandgate High Street. That's my fault!

    A few days ago I had someone mention there were loose tiles on the roof there. I went and had a look, and there were a number, including at least one actually hanging over the edge of the building above the bus stop, seemingly supported by nothing but prayer and pigeon droppings...
