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

    In the 2017 County Council elections in this area, Lib Dem Tim Prater came a clear second to the Conservatives.

    In the 2019 District Elections, Tim took the formerly safe Conservative seat of Sandgate & West Folkestone with 55% of the vote. He's a proven winner.

    As in 2019, the local Lib Dem and Green Party branches have agreed not to stand against each other to try to maximise our chances of bringing positive change, this time at Kent County Council. Shepway Green Party is backing Tim Prater to beat the Conservatives in Cheriton, Sandgate & Hythe East in the County Council elections this year.
