  • BBQ / Barbeque
    Event: Jul 27, 2019 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    4 St Deny's Road, Hawkinge CT18 7BU

    A relaxed summer BBQ, hopefully in the sun!

    Old, new and future members welcome.

    There's plenty of off-road parking available, but if you're planning to have a tipple it may be wise to use the Bus. The 16 or 16A both stop by Hawkinge Primary, which is a 2 minute walk from the house.

    Look forward to seeing you!

  • Sandgate Street Waste Bin with Dog Waste Sticker
    Article: Jul 9, 2019

    I today requested Folkestone and Hythe District Council if they could reprint and replace the faded and mainly damaged "Dog Waste" stickers on bins across the area with new stickers.

    When they quickly and helpfully agreed to do so this afternoon *if* I could find the previous wording and dimensions, I'm not totally sure they expected my level of research quite so quickly...

    From Councillor Prater to Councillor Godfrey, Cabinet Member for Housing, Transport and special projects

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, modern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.

If this sounds like you too, join us.
