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.”
After a spate of vandalism over the summer months which has meant we have had to replace 16 panes of glass, the Ramsgate Society is "pushing back" on behalf of the local community. We think the best way to push back is to renew our efforts to keep the shelters well maintained and in good condition so that they can be enjoyed by local residents and visitors.
Davena Green, Vice President, was able to make contact with a group of volunteers who all work for Pfizer in Sandwich. They are keen to put something back into their local communities on a purely voluntary basis. Two of our members John Piddock and Geoff Redmund offered to do some preparatory work to get the shelters ready for the Pfizer team then on Monday 8th September Davena and the Pfizer volunteers got to work and in a single day restored the two shelters to their former glory.
The Ramsgate society shop is no longer in the Custom House. We will be out and about during the summer.
We will have stalls at The Ramsgate festival on 22nd July at The Brasserie, 23rd and 30th at the Harbour. and 3rd September at Addington Street fair. Your support will be welcome. We plan on being back in The Clock House of the Maritime Museum at the beginning of October and volunteer help to be on the rota will be much appreciated.
2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the Ramsgate Town conservation area. To celebrate this the Ramsgate Society would like to plant 50 trees within the conservation area for future generations to enjoy.
