Councillor Gordon Cowan began a third consecutive year as Mayor of Dover, making his declaration of acceptance of office at the first “in person” meeting of the Town Council since the easing of covid-19 restrictions. Councillor Cowan welcomed new Councillor Andy Calder to his meeting following his election for the St Radigunds Ward. The Council also received a presentation from Mr Noel Beamish of Dover Outreach Centre on the Sunshine Community Café which is soon to open at the Centre in Snargate Street. The meeting took place at St Mary’s Parish Hall where more space was available for social distancing and the Council thank the team at St Mary’s for their help and support.
