COVID-19 has had a big impact on everything that we have done as a Police Force and as a town, but I think we have managed exceptionally well as a Force and as a town together.
It is nice to see people in the town especially with the demise of many high street shops and large out of town shopping centres popping up. COVID-19 has made people realise that small independent shops do need our custom and support.
Ramsgate, as many other towns, had to cancel many of its usual activities, which was such a shame for all the organisers and those that would have attended. But I am assured that many of these will be returning soon.
Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour will be celebrating its 200th anniversary of Royal status in September. This I am sure will be a super weekend for all ages.
We will be entering the South and South East in Bloom 2021 competition. I am hoping that by now we are well on our way to getting Ramsgate Blooming again after last year’s success, winning the SILVER GILT award. Check out the Facebook page Ramsgate in Bloom - www.facebook.com/ramsgatebloom
Ramsgate is such a wonderful community town, it has so many volunteer groups, whatever your interest, and a Town Council which goes above and beyond to keep our town welcoming for all.
