meanwhile.org I am not even sure how I stumbled upon them, but find them I did. Well how is that worth blogging about I can hear you asking! here goes let me run this by you. Thanet and Margate in particular has the countries highest rate of empty shops doesnt it. YES DON. Well here is an organisation bringing projects together with empty spaces so the empty derelict looking shops have shot term occupation and people have a reason to go and visit the area, lets face it Margate high street is deserted most of the time and Michael is say much the same about King street in Ramsgate. Even empty shop windows get a make over like the one on Marine Drive with the painting of the Fighting Temeraire. I just read of a shop front with a big picture of a deli on it "JUST FOR WINDOW SHOPPERS" The mayor of London Backs the scheme http://www.londonnewenterprise.co.uk/greater-london-authority-new-enterprise/ we have got a mayor havent we? Still enough from me I am ofski to watch the F1 action on the BBC.wHICH OF THE PHOTOS LOOK BETTER check out other margate photos on flickr http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=all&q=MARGATE+SHOP+&m=text#page=0
UPDATE http://www.wemakemargate.co.uk/ Seems I am slow off the mark Lynn Jackson just contacted me via twitter to add some more content. We have a hope wealth of talent here on our doorstep lets make use of their expertise and talents plus ideas from further afield. I am off for now but think about how Thanet can benefit from this scheme.
