I have been based in Ramsgate for nearly seven years. Each day when I get out of my car and walk in to work in Ramsgate, I feel very privileged.
The people, architecture, and the amazing Royal Harbour all make my job worthwhile. Those that meet and talk to me will know I am very passionate about my job and will do all I can to make Ramsgate a safe, and enjoyable town for all.
This year has been very unpredictable, and still is, but as a town we have all pulled together and shown that we have a very strong community spirit.
In my last article, I mentioned that we had entered Ramsgate into the South and South East in Bloom competition (Small Seaside Town category).
This was our first year of entry and again a tough year for all due to lockdown. The volunteers hadn’t been able to get out as early in the year as they had in previous years. Taking that all into consideration and with the RTC Technicians busy with food bank deliveries, the town did amazingly well and in September 2020, I received the results. We got a SILVER – GILT AWARD!
I would like to thank all those involved for what they achieved. There are so many and I apologise if I miss anyone out.
All the amazing volunteer gardeners, litter pickers, Rebekah Smith (RTC Town Promoter), RTC Councillors, especially Councillor Becky Wing, the RTC Technicians, the Ramsgate Allotments and Brian Whitehead for his wonderful photos. What a wonderful result we achieved for our first year! Onward and upwards for 2021. Please like our Facebook page, Ramsgate in Bloom, by visiting:
We also held a separate ‘Ramsgate in Bloom’ town competition with 20 + entrants. The town looked blooming wonderful! A big thank you goes out again to everyone who participated. Trophies were given to winners of individual categories and all those who entered received a certificate.
I am looking forward to St. George’s Church doing their Christmas Tree Festival again this year, dependent on COVID-19 restrictions. We participated in 2019 and will again this year.
