A big ‘Thank You’ from Ellie

May 31, 2018

I am grateful for all the help and support given to me during the recent Hythe Town Council election campaign.

It was a tremendous feat and I am proud to be connected with a group of people who worked so tirelessly in delivering both the initial campaign leaflet and the eve of poll to the whole ward.

The success is testament to the fact that Shepway Green Party is held in such regard by so many local people. I was touched by the warmth and positivity shown to me by many constituents.

I believe this is due to the efforts and reputation of councillors, members and supporters built up over many years.

I am working hard to achieve my very best and repay everyone’s hard work.

Kind regards
Ellie Cumming
