I think it is only right that they sell the buidings off. PEOPLE ARE MORE IMORTANT. You can't drink bricks.
We do know what is happening to Ramsgate Maritime Museum it's closing! The decision has been made and what has anyone done to stop the rot?
To stop the rot? We got up a petition, had folk queuing up to sign, it was sent to the council and.......ignored. No wonder people get disillusioned and don't bother to vote.In Broadstairs on a bitterly cold February day, nearly 200 folk in an hour signed. We could have got more but the deadline to get the petition in was extremely short. Like most consultations this council organise, the timescale is very short and you need to get moving immediately.
Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
