  • Princes Parade
    Article: Jun 15, 2017
    By Save Princes Parade in http://saveprincesparade.org/

    Things have been rather quiet on the Princes Parade front during the county and general elections but now that the purdah period is over we are expecting that Shepway will submit the planning application very soon so look out for emails from us with guidance on how to make your objections.

    Shepway District Council's Princes Parade Working Group is meeting this afternoon. Unusually the meeting is advertised on the calendar of meetings and the minutes will be published but the meeting is not open to the public. We have challenged this as the council have not given the required notice that the public are to be excluded but they have argued that as the Working Group is neither a sub committee of cabinet nor a decision making body then the public have no right to attend.

  • Shell Shock the Play
    Article: Jun 15, 2017

    As part of a national tour this summer, 'Shell Shock The Play' is coming to the Folkestone's Tower Theatre by Shornecliffe Barracks on Friday 28 July 2017 at 19:45. Tickets are £12, concessions £10, and are available online at www.towertheatrefolkestone.co.uk or by calling 01303 223925

    'Shell Shock The Play' tells one soldier's story of coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tommy Atkins' observations on life on civvy street are poignant, frequently comic and always moving. His over-emotional responses to post office queues, a trip to Ikea, his relationships and family lead to alienation and anger.
