I Promote Margate and The Isle of Thanet with its wonderful sandy beaches and bays. I have a theory you can always count ten ships off the coast of Margate and Cliftonville. I test this theory as often as possible counting ships is my obsession.
I always try and promote Mencaps activities and this one at Faversham is no exception. Faversham is my home town so I often promote stuff here on my blog so dont point out my blog is called Promote Thanet because I will point out it is MY BLOG and I will promote anything I want on it !!
