/ Kent Police Update - September 2020
These are unprecedented times with COVID-19, but I would like to say that Ramsgate has coped well, and many people have gone above and beyond to help neighbours, friends and those who generally needed assistance.
The Ramsgate Town Council Technicians have been doing an amazing job with all their food supply deliveries to the vulnerable, as well as helping to keep our town clean and tidy.
What else have we been doing?
Ramsgate in Bloom: Back in April, Councillor Becky Wing, local resident Davina Green and I met with the South and South East in Bloom Chairman and judges to discuss entering Ramsgate in to the competition. The meeting was a great success and we were advised to enter Ramsgate into the Small Seaside Town category, which we did. Our aim for next year is to enter Ramsgate in to other categories too. Further information to come.
We have also run our own competition for Ramsgate with the help of the Ramsgate Town Team and Rebekah Smith (The Ramsgate Town Promoter), with many shops and premises entering and brightening up our town.
Ramsgate Skate Park has been another project that we have been working on for a couple of years. We have previously had meetings with Thanet District Council. In July we had a meeting with Brent Lewis, CEO of Far Skate Academy and Director of British Skateboarding. Brent is very knowledgeable regarding funding and taking our project forward. Skateboarding will be an Olympic sport and we are expecting a big resurgence in participation, so we are hoping to be able to provide a safe environment for all at the Ramsgate Skate Park.
Since the last article, our new recruit, PCSO Bole, will be joining PCSO Stedman and covering Eastcliff and Sir Moses Montefiore Wards. PCSO Smith will be covering Newington and Northwood Wards with PCSO Jones. PCSO Parsons will assist covering Ramsgate Town centre.
Ramsgate Police Station is open Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm. When the station is closed there is a yellow phone outside the front entrance that can be used, free of charge, to report any issues.
Incidents can be reported by phoning 101 or online via the Kent Police Website. If you see any crimes in progress, please call 999.
