Pleasurama hoarding murals.

have received the following from Gerry O’Donnell, please spread the word.

This is to let you know that Cardy/SFP have agreed to let us paint murals on the new hoardings around the Pleasurama site. I have agreed that RTC should take some overview leadership to ensure that the artwork is the highest standard achievable in all circumstances, although for purposes of funding we should be looking to set up a organisation.

I am organising a meeting at Albion House for either week commencing 22nd/27th so that it can be advertised and possibly promoted in the IOT Gazette. I would like as many representatives of organisations/groups/schools/churches etc and those individuals who can significantly help in terms of funding, artwork, ideas and physical labour to attend. If you know of any who fit this bill please let me know, names and email addresses so that I can contact them also.

Speed is of the essence to ensure that as much or all of the work is in place before the summer season.

Lastly, there should be an element of continuity to underline that we are a community - think Bayeux Tapestry - for the work as a whole.

Enough said. Let's get talking.

If you can also think of any Ramsgate-based organisation that you think I might have missed or who you think should be included please tell me.

Best wishes,


  1. I think a copy ogf all you emails to TDC and pictures would make a good start for the hoarding.

  2. Better start quick or it'll be covered in grafitti !

  3. Good quality grafitti is what it should be covered in. Anything else will be tagged. I like good grafitti anyway.

  4. Michael, would it not be an idea to put the word out to 'Banksy' to have a look at the cliff face walls and hoardings?

    On a more serious note, is it a trick of the light in your pics or is the panel on the cliff face to the left of the repaired one not showing signs of gaps between bricks and movement?


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.
