Unexpected redevelopment meant that the Ramsgate Society had to leave its Harbour Street HQ at short notice this summer. It was generously offered temporary accommodation in the Maritime Museum annex at the Royal Harbour Clock House. The Steam Trust that runs the Museum and the nearby Steam Tug Cervia, holds an annual summer event. Volunteers from both the Society and the Museum jointly served refreshments on a glorious day in July.

Our first task has been to review what the society needs to do, to better enable it to carry out the role defined in its constitution:
“To encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in Ramsgate.
To stimulate public interest in and care for the beauty, history and character of the town and its surroundings.
To encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest.
To pursue these ends by means of meetings, exhibitions, lectures, publications, other forms of instruction and publicity,
and promotion of schemes of a charitable nature”
