During the pandemic, the Labour-led Dover Town Council has:

  • given grants to Triangles Community Centre Kitchen
  • helped fund refurbished laptops for school children from low-income families
  • provided support for the Christmas Hamper Project & Easter care packages.

Miriam Wood is standing for election to Dover Town Council and wants to join her Labour colleagues in working hard for the town. Miriam says:

I’ve lived in the Dover area for nearly 40 years. I spent my career teaching in local schools and my children went to school in this town too. I love living in Dover, but we have problems here: poor-quality housing, boarded-up shops and weak infrastructure which cuts the town off from its wonderful seafront.

When I was elected to the Town Council in 2015, I found this was a great chance to give something back to the community. I would love to have the chance to be involved again in improving the town, particularly for the residents of St. Radigund’s.

I pledge to

  • work to influence a reduction in traffic problems for road users and residents
  • support, maintain and improve amenities both indoors and outdoors
  • work to improve the provision of public conveniences in the town.
