Our flagship magazine - Ramsgate Matters - is created twice a year, printed and posted to members.
To fill the gaps and hopefully get news to you quicker than before, we've created the “R” Newsletter. It'll be produced six times a year but will only be available online from our website.
Our first edition is jam packed full of articles including:

The Ramsgate Society shop will re-open in the Clock house of the Maritime Museum on Tuesday October 9th. We still have some spaces on our rota of helpers. If you could offer a couple of hours of time there are spaces on Tuesday afternoon from 1.00pm- 4pm, Friday afternoon from 1.00pm - 4.00pm and Saturday from 1.00 - 4.00pm.
Although it is likely to be quiet we need 2 volunteers at all times. We have Ramsgate Society items for sale and also are willing to talk to visitors about Ramsgate as a town and listen to any concerns. The membership Secretary (Janet Reid) and myself are always available to lock up at the end of the day and support in anyway we can.

Our Great British Spring Clean
10.00 am, Sunday 4 March 2018,
Clock House, Ramsgate Harbour
As part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean, members of The Ramsgate Society will be joining hands with local groups, including Sea Scouts, Guides and Cadets to pick up litter in and around Ramsgate town centre and harbour on Sunday 4th March 2018 from 10am. The litter pick will start from the Clock house at the Ramsgate Harbour. It is hoped community groups and volunteers will join The Ramsgate Society in making it a Great British Spring Clean.

Sir Terry Farrell CBE has called on the planning profession to embrace the opportunities presented by the continuing technology revolution.
Speaking at a ceremony at which he became only the 15th person in more than a century to be awarded the RTPI’s Gold Medal, the architect, planner and urban designer said emerging technologies were set to “transform” the planning profession.
”We may get to the point where we don’t have planning committees,” said Sir Terry, “instead having decisions on planning applications made through the equivalent of game simulators where you can press a button to decide yes or no.”
