August Bank Holiday Weekend, what’s on in Ramsgate.

 This weekend there are two major events on in Ramsgate

 The maritime museum is holding a steam event, on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th, arranged by the Steam Museum Trust and happening at Pier Yard and the on the crosswall.  It will feature several visiting vessels, S.T. Cervia in steam, various steam engines, cars, etc and a fairground.
 The  “Summer Squall” arts festival is on all over the town, the program for this is available as a pdf file at

The pictures are of steam preparations.

I did manage to skive off work in my bookshop for a short time today and take some pictures of activities in the vicinity of the harbour today, here is the link

Note the carousel, it is one of the best in the UK and I believe the only one with bears, note the carved running board, the names on the gallopers will be those of the showman’s family.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
