  • 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!

    They rent adult bikes from 2 hours up to full days, and also offer a range of child trailers and "tag a long" child trailer bikes.

    A new "Pay As You Go" or monthly subscription cycling service click2cycle serving Folkestone, Sandgate and Hythe launches on 16th June.

    To rent a bike, you need to download an app to your smartphone. You then set up an account, sign in, and find your nearest bike using the app. You then use the app to unlock your bike from the collection point at pick up, and again when you drop it back off. Pay As You Go rental cost £6 for the first hour, but a variety of price options are available.
