Low Council Tax - Better Services - Value for Money


David Carr

In May 2007, and again in 2011, residents in Rainham elected Conservative Cllr David Carr to represent the ward of Rainham North.

This is my web site, keeping you up to date on what I'm doing to help improve the area and represent you on Medway Council.

On this site you can find out how to contact your local councillor by telephone or e-mail, alternatively we hold regular surgeries on the first Saturday of each month at the Rainham Contact Centre at the top of Station Road Rainham from 0915 to 1230. There's information on the local campaigns we're fighting and how you can get involved and regular updates on the issues that matter to you.

We are determined to make a real difference to Rainham.

100th year anniversary in WW1

News posted on Tuesday, 23 September 2014

Sunday witnessed the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of three royal navy ships.HMS ABOUKIR, HMS HOGUE and HMS CRESSY which were sunk by enemy submarine action on 22nd September 1914 off the Dutch coast in the North Sea with a total loss of life of 1,459 men. Of those who lost their lives 1,264 men were from the Chatham Port Division and their names are inscribed on the Chatham Naval Memorial. Others are recorded in Portsmouth, Devonport and private memorials. The first shot of the war was fired at the end of August and the first loss was of HMS Pathfinder on 5th September, but the loss of these three cruisers was one of the worst days for the Royal Navy so early in the war.

This event was the first major World War 1 100th anniversary commemorative event of national significance for the county and, appropriately for Chatham, the focus will be on the Royal Navy.I was delighted that our Principal Guest for the Drumhead Service was His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent KG.
