    Local Lib Dem Lynne Beaumont has reacted with shock at plans to transfer all community breastfeeding support services to the Health Visiting Service. The plans will result in a saving to Kent County Council of £404,000 per year.

    Concerns have been raised about the cutting of specialist support in favour of support from nurses who offer more general support. This change could potentially lead to reduced quality of, and access to, much needed support for families in Kent.

    PRESS RELEASE

    19th July 2017

    There were plenty of honks and thumbs ups from passing vehicles, including police and ambulance workers, when protesters took to the Folkestone Civic Centre to make their voices heard tonight. Angry about the 15% pay rise that KCC Councillors awarded themselves, whilst Public sector workers are offered a hard fought for 1%, a group of 20 residents participated in the demonstration. It was organised by Facebook group, We Love Folkestone Politics, which is encouraging people to make the move from the internet and on to the streets, getting people out of their lounges and bedrooms to raise awareness of political issues. Founded by Danielle Anson and Sheree Bell, the group originally started as a way of encouraging voter registration in the local and national elections and quickly grew as a platform for people of all political persuasions in Folkestone to share news and discuss the things that matter to them.

    At today's County Council meeting Kent's Conservatives voted to increase member allowances by 15%. Liberal Democrat and other opposition councillors voted against the proposal as did one Conservative. Nine Conservative councillors abstained.

    Earlier in the debate Conservative councillors set aside the Liberal Democrat proposal that councillors should follow the advice of the independent Member Remuneration Panel which had recommended a modest 1.5% rise.
