    Article: May 24, 2017

    Being a Parish Councillor you get a fair range of enquiries, but yesterday offered a new one, when someone asked me if I could do anything about the bee swarm on Sandgate High Street....

    By Tim Prater in Letter to Seabrook & Sandgate residents

    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".
