    Another one from the archives provided by Terry Preston: every local election result for Shepway District Council from its inception in 1973 until 2011.

    Although its sad to see the Lib Dems reduced to zero seats in 2011, we're back with 2 seats on Folkestone and Hythe District Council in 2019 - the cycle starts again...

  • Minutes of July 1973 Shepway Council meeting
    Article: Jan 2, 2020

    Former Liberal and Lib Dem Councillor Terry Preston has been in touch with the minutes of the first ever motion to Shepway District Council on 4th July 1973.

    At that meeting, Terry as a lone Liberal Councillor moved a motion calling for full financial disclosure of all outside financial interests.

    Sadly, after amendment, that the motion was lost, but it was one of many things that Terry spent years championing as a Liberal Councillor that did in time come to pass. Public questions at meetings was another example - that one took over 20 years to get through!
