“Shut That Door“ In Sandwich to support Vicky Day (Kent Fire and Rescue Service) to promote fire safety. Just closing a door can win thirty life-saving minutes and contain damage to the home. It was also good to meet with local Councillors and Sandwich - Neighbourhood Watch in St Peter's Church.

An excellent gathering of companies and employees for the Pfizer Jobsfair hosted by Discovery Park at Sandwich. Also good to receive a thorough briefing from the Pfizer site Director, Julian Thompson, and his senior management team. The planned reduction in the company’s workforce in the UK was of great concern, of course, but a great effort is being put into securing other employment and retaining science skills in Kent. Thanks, on behalf of Craig Mackinlay and myself (Clink link to read more)

An interesting fortieth pre-Christmas visit to the Post Office Sorting Office. There have been some changes over the years - and not all for the better. Questions need to be asked but don’t blame your Posties if your cards and letters are delayed this year.

Great morning at Ham Fen near Sandwich with the Kent Wildlife Trust and the Beaver Trust as a ‘species champion’ for the British beaver. Not a beaver in sight (they sleep during the day) but a good look at their habitat, a lodge and a dam that they have built. These little animals are seriously good for the environment. After 400 years in exile it’s time to bring them back to where they belong.
