    Live local to Sandgate? Looking for a paid Saturday job?

    Marsh Produce are looking for a person to run their free range meat and vegetable stall at the Sandgate Farmers Market on the first and third Saturday of the month at the Chichester Hall (10 to 12:30). Clearly any applicant should be confident handling money, numerate and enjoy dealing with the public.

    You would need a vehicle as produce has to be collected and returned to their farm in Brookland on the Romney Marsh before and after the Market. Marsh Produce will pay the successful applicant including petrol costs.

    To apply please contact Deborah Ovenden at marshproduceltd@yahoo.co.uk or phone 07427 626754.

  • Sandgate Esplanade Zebra Crossing
    Article: Oct 18, 2017

    I'm *really* pleased about this - after years of lobbying and almost getting there, at the end of October Kent Highways will be installing a new zebra crossing on Sandgate Esplanade just about at the foot of Brewers Hill! Kent's notice of the roadworks is as follows:

    Kent County Council are planning to install a new Zebra crossing point on the A259 Sandgate Esplanade, Sandgate, located at the bottom of Brewers Hill. The plans also include the installation of a kerb build out to make the zebra crossing more visible to on-coming traffic. Parking restrictions will be shortened to mitigate loss of parking. Installation of regimented parking bays to alleviate habitual footway parking and the resurfacing of the carriageway from junction of Prospect Road to junction of Castle Bay. (please see a plan of what we are planning to do below).
