Letter to the Editor

Christmas Parcel Appeal 2014

Maidstone Salvation Army Corps would like to thank the people of Maidstone and the surrounding area for their very generous support of the Christmas Parcel appeal by supplying new toys, toiletries, food and donations of money.

The incredible generosity of individuals, local businesses, community groups, secondary schools and housing associations enabled us to help 308 children and their families, with presents and parcels of food for families who would otherwise have had nothing or very little over Christmas.

Thank You!

 

 

Support Stacks Up For Stranded Motorists

London South-East Division provided welfare support to a number of stranded lorry drivers caught up in severe traffic delays on the M20.

Kent County Council Emergency Planning Team requested support as part of Operation Stack – where freight vehicles are parked on the M20 because of delays at Eurotunnel or the Channel ports. The operation is in phase two, which means the M20 is closed to all Southbound traffic beyond junction eight to allow large numbers of lorries to be parked on the carriageway. Cars are diverted to other routes while lorries are held on the motorway with expected delays of up to seven hours before they are moved a few at a time to the Tunnel or Channel ports.
