South Thanet MP, Craig Mackinlay, and the Mayor of Ramsgate and Chairman of Ramsgate Town Council, Cllr Trevor Shonk, yesterday held a walk around the town to view its local ‘hotpots’.
During the walk the pair viewed various sights including the 6 acres of derelict land that was once Boundary Road gas works. The walk took in Eastcliff and the town centre.
The Conservative MP and the Thanet Independent Councillor occasionally hold walks around Ramsgate and have pledged to continue to work closely together to improve to town.
Craig Mackinlay MP commented:
“I am very grateful to the Mayor for taking the time, once again, for our regular town walk – a town we, in our different ways, are both so very lucky to represent. Trevor's knowledge of the history of the town, who and what was once at each location is truly encyclopaedic.
“While Ramsgate and our Royal Harbour are beautiful places to live, work and visit, there are pockets of deprivation in the town and areas crying out for regeneration that both Cllr Shonk and myself are well aware of and working together to address.”
The Mayor of Ramsgate and Chairman of Ramsgate Town Council, Cllr Trevor Shonk:
“Only by working together can we solve all our issues regarding Thanet and our town.”
