Ramsgate Town Council gets a town clerk from Lydd

Ramsgate council has appointed a town clerk Richard Styles, he is Lydd’s town clerk at the moment and to start with he will only be working on Fridays, as he has to work out his notice at Lydd.

This is very important as the town council has to have a town clerk to function, it is also reassuring that the council has appointed someone experienced, who I gather is keen to take the council to quality status.
I couldn’t find a picture Richard Styles so have illustrated this post with a picture of a previous Ramsgate town clerk, Blasdale Clarke, he is the one bewigged seated at the desk.
It is with some interest that I speculate, will our new town clerk wear a wig to fit in with our, so far ceremonial council?

  2. Anon 10.58, yes silly you, the town clerk is a paid official and not a councillor and if he is good at his job he could have come from Mars!

  4. Now we have a town council perhaps they will do something to ensure we still have a Sailors Church at Ramsgate Harbour, apparently a local well known publican is interested in the building and Mr Grumpy is trying the same tactics that worked with the port cafe, and trying to price the Church out with massive rental increases. "Christmas spirit an all that"

  5. 15:58 You must be joking Cllr Roger & Cllr John who are responsible for the port and harbour would not evict the Sailor's Church. The Mayor of Ramsgate is a great supporter. Is it time to start a "Save our Church Campaign" or "hands off our church"
