Ramsgate library reconstruction works

As some of you will know KCC have banned photography of the construction work at Ramsgate Library, so here is a rare picture of the construction work.

Pictures of this type are invaluable to historians in years to come, without them major events on Ramsgate’s history like the rebuilding of the library go unrecorded and eventually forgotten.

There are some old pictures of Ramsgate Library the bottom of one of my web pages click here to go there

    ORGANISERS are putting the finishing touches to Margate’s Big Event 2008, with tens of thousands of people expected to pack Palm Bay for the event.

    The two-day extravaganza takes place on June 14-15 and with Fathers’ Day falling on the Saturday, what better way to treat your dad than with a full flying display and amazing arena acts?

    Admission to Kent’s leading air and land festival is free, although there is a £5 charge for car parking, and organisers are expecting more than 60,000 people through the gates.

    Filling the skies above Thanet will be spectacular aircraft, including the Royal Navy Black Cat helicopters and a Typhoon jet fighter, alongside thrilling display teams like the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the Falcons and Tigers parachute teams and the Hawk 208 Squadron.

    The Imps Motorcycle Team, world record holders James Dylan Stuntworld and one of the country’s top equestrian teams, the Devil’s Horsemen, will be among the arena acts.

    Saturday will be rounded off by a Magic of Motown tribute concert and a full fireworks display.

    Cllr Sandy Ezekiel, leader of Thanet District Council, said: “This will be a fantastic, fun filled weekend for all the family. This year’s event will be much larger than in 2007; we’re getting bigger and better every year.

    “The whole of Margate will be busy and everyone is more than welcome. Thanet is events led and we put on more events here than any other part of the country. That is something that we’re immensely proud of.”

    The event has been organised by Thanet District Council and is sponsored by local firms GSE Group, Commercial Group Properties and Sky Charter.

  2. 11.05 I will do a post about this do you know where I can get some pictures with permission to publish them to illustrate it with as I am afraid I have never been so haven’t got any myself.


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.
