Annual Meeting

Folkestone's second annual meeting, held last night on the Bayle, passed without hitch. A number of District and County Councillors also attended to report on their activities, including the newly elected Conservative County Councillor for Folkestone North East, Dick Pascoe.

The Town Centre Manager also reported on his organisations work in promoting and beautifying the town. He stressed that he is keen to work with the Town Council in order that we may better serve the needs of the town.

One member of the public also spoke, on behalf of the New Folkestone Society. He raised some important issues about the condition and maintenance of local trees, which the Town Clerk and SDC Cabinet member Cllr Hugh Barker pledged to raise with Cllr Mrs Newlands, SDC Cabinet member for the Environment.
