I Promote Margate Ramsgateand Broadstairs towns of The Isle of Thanet plus it's 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.

Mary Portas and Margate shops
O have spent the morning listening to BBC Radio 4 and a programme about High streets up and down the country.Mary has put together a list of recommendations and these all need looking at and acting upon. Our High streets here in Thanet are in a mess but we are doing something about changing things. I hope the new council administration is up to the job. I have no answers but I started working after school in a shop some 40 years ago and the world has change an awful lot in those years. Margates Old Town has become our very own Cultural centre and it enhances the Turner Centre and the Harbour. I for one am pleased to live in Thanet and I see green shoots of growth but when you listen to some people the glass is half empty.
