Thanet Loyalty Card

I saw a little snippet of a report on the BBC morning news today about a town in Shropshire that has implemented a loyalty card scheme in order to increase footfall and keep people shopping local and I wondered to myself if something like that would work for our local towns?
I?ve just googled and found [...]

Timber washes ashore at Ramsgate

On Monday night a cargo ship shed its 1,500 tonne load of timber into the sea and over the last couple of days it?s been washing up on the Thanet coast where I live. This morning I had the chance to pop down the seafront with my camera and took quite a few snaps as [...]

Ramsgate Harbour timelapse video

I?m not sure how many of you know that Ramsgate Harbour has its own webcam that transmits 24 hours a day. If you watch the actual stream it?s not very interesting as it only refreshes every 15 seconds, but if someone sets up something clever and captures the images for 24 hours and makes a [...]

Gadds' Ramsgate Brewery

Gadds? Ramsgate Brewery

On Thursday night I went to the Gadds? Ramsgate Brewery, and had a most excellent time. I?ve been on a few brewery tours before but I have to say this was the best one and after my post about Thanet going to the dogs it?s nice to actually see a local independant business doing well.
The [...]

The Sovereign, Harbour Street, Ramsgate

The Sovereign, Harbour Street, Ramsgate

I?ve popped into The Sovereign a couple of times over the past month and to be honest it doesn?t have much atmosphere but it is quite cheap, which I guess makes a change from all those Thorley pubs which have no atmosphere and are very expensive.
Anyway The Sovereign on Harbour Street, Ramsgate is opererated by [...]

The Future of Thanet

There is a lot of doom and gloom around the local area at the moment and there don?t seem to be that many people around with positive views of the Thanet area or its future. Maybe we?re all suffering from SAD but it goes deeper than that and it seems that most of the people [...]
