Kent County Council have announced that from Thursday 19th March 2020 until further notice all concessionary bus passes will be valid prior to 9:30am to support earlier shopping trips for essential items

On Friday 29th of July, Cllr Keith Morris (Leader of the council), Cllr MJ Holloway (Cabinet Member for Community Services) & Matthew Scott (Police & Crime Commissioner) officially opened our Community Stores, as part of our Community Caretakers Scheme. A new community scheme that aims to help provide local people with the tools they need to make a real difference to their communities.

Dover District Council has now installed and equipped six Community Stores, across the district. All in various shapes and sizes containing a range of materials, equipment and protective clothing to help support community projects. The stores are available for anyone who would like to register as a Community Caretaker to help in their local area. Community Caretakers are local residents who have volunteered some of their spare time to help with anything that benefits their local community. This could include for example litter picking, painting, planting, gardening, sweeping, and basic DIY.

Currently we have stores in:
• Sandwich
• Wingham
• Aylesham
• Deal
• Dover Town
• St Radigunds

We still have sheds & equipment available to provide more Community Stores across the district. However, we are installing on a first come first serve basis. If you feel your area would benefit from a Community Store, please get in contact.

The Community Stores are run by Dover District Council’s Community Services team, and has been funded by the Department of Housing, Community and Local Government, and by a grant from the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner through the Community Safety Partnership.
