Ramsgate Carnival 2011 this Sunday

The pictures in this post are of the 1968 carnival taken here in King Street, click on them to enlarge. 
There is a series of linked pages (links at the top of the pages)of last year’s carnival here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/rc2010/id5.htm the image files were corrupted so I am republishing them, you may have to wait until about 5.30 for decent pictures.

I have asked the council if they will be promoting any of the Thanet Carnival’s on their website this year, I wouldn’t hold your breath for an answer though.

I have one foi request that is so late that it seems with my only recourse to questions from TDC being an foi request I may have to issue a foi request asking when my foi request will be answered.  

Update I received the following reply about the carnival promotion from TDC:

Dear Mr Child,

The Thanet town carnivals are not organised by Thanet District Council but
instead by independent bodies.

Should the organisers wish for their events to be promoted on the TDC website
they can contact the council and this will be considered. They can also sign up
to our community portal and post their events. Once posted, they will appear on
the front page of the council's website under the Events category. We have not
received any contact regarding promotion of these events from any of the
organisers to date.

Kind regards,

Another update, I have managed to find the pictures for the 2008 Ramsgate Carnival, a series of linked pages of picture (links at the top of the pages) at http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/RamsgateCarnival2008/

Post a Comment

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.
