Defibrillator 2021

Town Hall DefibrillatorHythe Town Council has installed a life saving defibrillator on the side of the Town Hall in Hythe High Street.

The defibrillator is accessible 24/7, but to access the defibrillator a ‘999’ call will need to be dialled where the dispatcher will provide the caller with an access code.

You do not need to be trained to use a defibrillator – anyone can use it. There are clear instructions on how to attach the defibrillator pads. It then assesses the heart rhythm and will only instruct you to deliver a shock if it is needed.

Folkestone Pride – History Month

February is LGBTQIA+ History Month which means it’s time for us all to learn from and celebrate the contributions and achievements of our LGBTQIA+ communities.

LGBTQIA+ History Month was founded in 1994 by Rodney Wilson, a history teacher from Missouri, USA.

Since then cities and towns across the world have joined in celebrating this important history month, including our neighbouring Town Folkestone.

The amazing coordinators at Folkestone Pride have put together a month jam packed full of workshops, exhibitions and activities for you to enjoy online throughout February.

You can find them all on their e-newsletter here: http://ymlp.com/zV9dlw

Holocaust Day 2021

Holocaust DayWednesday January 27 is Holocaust day that commemorates the heinous crimes against the Jewish people perpetrated by the Nazi regime between 1933 and ’45 when 6 million Jews of Europe were viciously and systemically murdered.

Holocaust day encourages us to reflect on the depths into which humanity can sink and how individuals and nations confuse darkness to be the light.  It is important therefore to mark this day, not only in the memory of the Jewish people, but of other minorities groups such as the gypsies, homosexuals, Roma,  mentally and physically disabled, dissidents, and those not considered to be Aryan.

Holocaust Day is a stark reminder of the dark shades of social persecution and the importance of remaining vigilant against hatred and prejudice. In the words of Rudyard Kipling, we remember lest we forget – lest we forget!

National Storytelling Week 2021

National Storytelling Week 21January 30- February 6

National storytelling week takes place each year during the first week of February; it is usually celebrated with readings in libraries, cafes, bookshops, care homes, and public spaces. This year Hythe Town Council would like to celebrate by inviting people to share stories with the community online.

Stories help us to connect and learn from one another, as well being entertaining. Rarely have these things been so important as they are now, so please watch out for readings of both original and pre-loved stories on our website and social media pages between 30th January – 6th February.

Everyone has a story, if you would like to share yours with us, please email: admin@hythe-tc.gov.uk

When sending through your stories, please could you confirm that you give Hythe Town Council your consent to share your video on the Council’s website and social media pages.
