Gerald Tripp and Benedict Kelly, regular contributors to the Society Magazine have produced a new booklet on Ramsgate Past: The Royal Ramsgate 1665-2015. It was personally sponsored by the Mayor of Ramsgate, Trevor Shonk. He contributed unpublished material from his own historical archives, and believes that, like their recent 1736 Map, such publications go a long way towards promoting the town. Were our Mayor’s example to be followed by other civic dignitaries, print and publishing sectors with numerous artists and authors of England and very probably the whole economy might all enjoy a boom.
