Why Hide Thanet Pride Thanet District Council

Once again a major local event partly sponsored by Thanet District Council and nothing on the council website.

I have contacted all the usual candidates at the council bur don’t expect much.

Update, many thanks to Dr Simon Moores who managed to find it on one of TDCs websites that is hosted by a private company, it’s nearly as bizarre as the TDC planning site.

It lists Ramsgate as only having one shop “Ramsgate Town Partnership” it lists Margate as having 10 shops I haven’t been there for a while so this may be accurate.

Here you go see if you can find the link to Thanet Pride.


  1. Don't worry Thanet's premier blog the one with "Bignews Margate" in the title has endorsed this years event once again, as I did last year, and hope that its well attended as it was last year.

    Its events like this that create business for the local community probably more so than the Big Event which does nothing to encourage visitors to the area. Well done to those who've organiside it.

  2. Absolutely with you on this one Tony events that happen in the towns are what we need.

  3. Michael

    It's not hidden. Simply o to the events list and you will find it there with all our other events.

  4. Well spotted Simon, what with one thing and another we could run a competition along the lines of where have TDC hidden it on their website.

    Is this a TDC website? Does it cost us much?

    It seems to rate Thanet Pride well below belly dancing classes.


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.
