    By Membership Secretary in Save Princes Parade Email Update

    At last night's F&HDC's Full Council meeting we were disappointed, but not surprised, when Cllr Tim Prater's amendments to both the corporate plan and the budget failed. Cllr Prater's amendments were:

    1. To remove the words 'at Princes Parade' from the corporate plan;
    2. To remove the budget funding for the project.

    Although the vaccination progamme is now starting to have an impact, it's too soon to relax.

    We're all finding it hard - but no-one should feel as though they are alone during this challenging time. There is support available, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. In Folkestone and Hythe there are Community Hubs to help those who haven't got alternative support.

    "...as of 1pm today [12 Feburary], we have vaccinated 16,872 residents of Folkestone, Dover & Deal across both sites at Dover Health Centre and Folkestone Civic Centre. This figure also includes care home residents and staff.
