We’ve our next action day, following on from the ones in Dymchurch and central Hythe, on Saturday 25th March. We are meeting at the Light Railway Cafe in Hythe at 10am. There will be plenty of canvassing and leafleting to be done, all help gratefully received! These are fun, sociable days, with local members and also visiting volunteers from other Kent Green Party branches, as we focus on this target ward to re-elect Martin Whybrow, our hard-working local councillor, and keep a much needed ‘green voice’ on Kent County Council.
Our challenge is that much greater due to the Boundary Commission’s redrawing of boundaries in Kent. This has divided Hythe in two, creating Hythe West (Twiss Road, onwards, including Dymchurch and Lympne) and Hythe East (including Sandgate and much of Cheriton). Ross Carter is our excellent candidate for the latter, with a strong emphasis on saving our open spaces, including Prince’s Parade.

If you cannot make the action day but are willing to help with the campaign, then please do make contact (email@example.com) as we’ll have other action days plus lots of additional leafleting and canvassing, plus other tasks, all the way through to the election on 4th May.
