For the first time ever, we secured three Thanet Disctrict Council and two Town Council seats for the Green Party. Meet your newly elected Councillors:
I moved to Ramsgate in 2010 after falling in love with the place on trips abroad using the Sally Line. I’m originally from the East End, so a genuine DFL, but taught for 25 Years in Barnsley. I now work with Charlton Athletic Community Trust as a mentor for young people – our most valuable asset who are often ‘not heard’.
I chair Addington Street Community Group, which aims to bring the community together and support our small businesses. Like many others, I’m regularly out litter picking, helping paint our Victorian Shelters and planting bulbs.

I was the South Thanet Green Party Candidate at the 2017 General Election and have a keen interest in and knowledge of environmental issues and their implications – for example, for transport, renewable energy and recycling.
I have been active in opposing the development of Manston as a Cargo Hub Airport because the noise and air pollution produced would cause severe damage to the area. Instead, I believe that the site provides the ideal location for mixed-use development, thus avoiding thousands of houses being built on greenfield sites spread around the local villages.
As your Councillor, I will work to:
