My Three Priorities for Dover & Deal:

Please be aware that my office will be closed from 21st December until the 4th January. Therefore, emails may not be picked up and actioned straight away.

My website contains numbers of local services for urgent matters over the Christmas period, as well as helpful advice on coronavirus.
