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.
Whether you are a Royalist or Republican we need your support for our next Big Clean up event which is being held as part of the national campaign to de-litter the streets and byways of our towns and villages in preparation for the Queen’s 90th birthday.
We are planning to repeat our successful clean-up of East and West Cliff and part of Central Harbour carried out last October. We will be meeting outside Gerry’s Coffee Shop in Albert Court, off York Street (view a map), at 10.00am on Saturday 5 March where all volunteers will be provided with litter pickers, gloves and high viz jackets.
