Jeremy Corbyn campaigning with Karen Constantine in Newington, Ramsgate

I’m passionate about fairness but I believe Ramsgate is being left behind. With some vision and hard work it could be, and should be, a vibrant community full of opportunities for all who live, work and visit here.

Last May local voters elected me to Kent County Council to be a vocal champion for our area. I have taken on the role knowing I will be a strong voice for our corner of Kent and promising to fight for a fairer future for Thanet.


Concerned about OUR NHS? Worried about Stroke services being moved from Margate to Ashford?

The local Labour team, myself included, will be out and about in coming weeks running street stalls to highlight potentially damaging changes to our NHS services, including moving Stroke Services to Ashford and reducing the number of local GP surgeries. Stalls will be held in Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Cliftonville, with more locations planned. Come and meet us to discuss the plans and air your own concerns. A list of street stall times and locations is listed here and will be updated as we add more.
