I typed in Thanet recovery into google and About 335,000 results (0.29 seconds) came up. So Google as well as Twitter is alive with Thanets recovery. Twitter has Ron Scott's Antique Emporium buzzing through its tweets and also the Turner Centre being on the news last night. Unfortunately the google search referred to car recovery. I must be the only person in Thanet who is delighted by the immanent opening of the Turner Contemporary Centre. I love the idea and excited that at last it is almost open, I am possibly going for a sneak preview a few days before the official opening on the 16th of April and if it comes off I will blog about it.
The thing that started me searching google for Thanet's recovery was my recent trip to St. George's garage in Harold Road in Cliftonville. Ross and Bob at St.Georges are quietly working away selling used Mercedes and Volkswagen's and when I popped in last week the workshop was busy servicing an Audi a BMW and Peugeot. Opposite Saint Georges is the Grand Garage who are having a refit and obviosly they wouldn't be doing that if business was bad. Margate will also benefit from the Dreamland park and even from the proposed Tesco store at Arlington House. I havent heard much about the Margate football ground redevelopment but as far as I know if is going ahead. So all in all Thanet is trying hard to cope with the Pfizer closure.
