As organiser of the annual event ‘Sea Safety Day’, I would like to say what a great summer it has been for events in Ramsgate. I don’t think a weekend goes by where there isn’t something happening. A big well done to all organisations, associations, and individuals that run events. I look forward to seeing what spectaculars will be put on again next summer, I know that there is still a packed list of events to come.
The Ramsgate PCSOs, PC Hitchcock and I have been kept busy in Ramsgate and the surrounding areas during the summer and have been working closely with other agencies and emergency services. Summer is always a good time, where we work closely with the RNLI Lifeguards, keeping beaches safe for all to enjoy.
We have been attending Neighbourhood Engagement meetings with numerous other agencies, Thanet District Council and local Councillors. Members of the public have the opportunity to express any concerns that they have, we can then approach this with a multi-agency response. Dates for these meetings can be found on the Thanet District Council website. The next meeting will be on November 7 at 7pm at the Elms Club, Elms Avenue, Ramsgate.
I am still running my monthly surgeries at the Ramsgate Library, 10:30am – 11:30am:
- Wednesday November 8, 2017 also attending Councillor Constantine.
- Wednesday December 13, 2017 also attending Councillors Messenger and Constantine.
My surgeries are open to all and are on a ‘first come first served’ basis. I am grateful to Councillors Messenger and Constantine for taking time out of their busy schedule to attend my surgeries. I am hoping in the future that I can open meetings to other organisations to attend as well.
My contact details can be found on the Kent Police website should anyone wish to contact me. They can speak to me in person at one of the surgeries, or simply by popping into the Police Station in York Street, which is open Monday to Friday between 9am – 5pm.
Other contact methods are 101 for non-emergency
