    Figures published today show that more than 69,105 homes in Kent have benefited from the rollout of superfast broadband.

    In total more than two million homes and businesses in hard to reach areas across the UK have benefited from the government roll out.

    Superfast broadband is internet speeds greater than 24Mbps and the Government wants 95% of homes and businesses to have access to this by 2017- backed up with £1.7bn of investment.

  • Free School Meals
    Article: Jan 26, 2015

    "I have to say we have been very lucky to have had the Liberal Democrats in government; cutting income tax for the lowest paid, marriage equality, defending the Human Rights Act against those in the Conservatives who would wish to repeal the Act, free school meals for primary school children, trying to reform our tired old political system by having a referendum on the electoral system and attempting to reform the House of Lords and finally arguing to remain as part of the European Union in the face of an increasingly Eurosceptic, right wing Conservative Party."

  • Operation Stack
    Article: Jan 23, 2015
    By Lynne Beaumont, Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Folkestone & Hythe

    The chaos of the last 6 days on the roads around South East Kent has been horrendous for all concerned. People stuck in traffic chaos for hours at a time. Journeys that usually take half an hour taking longer than three.

    This was due to the implementation of Operation Stack: the practice of parking lorries on the M20 when there is a problem with the Channel Tunnel or the port of Dover.

  • Ballot paper
    Article: Jan 9, 2015

    If you want to vote in the General Election and / or Local Elections on 7th May 2015, you must register to vote. It is not automatic.

    In previous years, one person in each house filled out a form for everyone in the house. This is no longer the case.

    Everyone needs to register as an individual, and prove their identity as well to cut down on voting fraud.

    Team Lynne is a group of local people who care passionately about Shepway. Some are Lib Dems - some are not.

    What brought us together is the belief that Shepway can be better and that only by working together can we make this happen. If you can offer half an hour or more, at any time, please do come and join us!
