Tudor Christmas

I have just read with much delight an article on the Thanet District Council website about the Tudor house that was open for the past two weekend. 1200 PEOPLE VISITED yep over the two weekend one thousand two hundred people went to  see  the lovely old building. I read the words of Cllr. Martin Wise, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, said: “It’s wonderful to see so many people enjoying the Tudor House in Margate this Christmas. It just emphasises what a popular attraction it is in the town and how art and culture enhance its appeal”. and it got me to thinking about heritage and our close neighbours whom to CULTURE WELL and Faversham came to mind it promotes itself as a historic destination and recognises that the history wild card is what brings in visitors each week of the year.Margate is slightly different in respect we are on the coast so have to draw our visitors from only one direction. But Faversham have a dedicated group of councilors who recognise that HERITAGE PAYS and that all planning has to be of benefit and of a standard to enhance the character of what is already there. Also Faversham has a band of volunteers that work promoteing Faversham and its may assets
