John Walker, Chairman of The Ramsgate Society and Deputy Chairman of Civic Voice of which The Ramsgate Society was a founder member, pictured with Griff Rhys Jones President of Civic Voice and Charles Campion of architects and planners John Thompson and Partners at the launch of a 3 day community planning event focused on Paddington Place next to Paddington Station in London.
The event was a response to a design competition organised by Creative Streets to find a street friendly development brief for the site and is an example of the "Charette" approach to community engagement in planning which civic societies like The Ramsgate Society advocated for the future.
Good Morning Britain are looking for a selection of local families and people to get involved with a Good Morning Britain special that they will be running on Friday June 24th about the EU referendum.
They are looking to speak to people and maybe find a family to speak to on the morning of June 24th and on the run up to the vote.
The show will be going on air at 6am and running until 9.30am on that day. They may also ask families to do some video diaries in the run up to the referendum. They would love to speak to a few generations from the same family.
Our quiz at the The Churchill Tavern last week was a roaring success as you'll see from the picture below.
Thanks to everyone who turned up and supported us.
