I’ve just stumbled across a nice personal website for Broadstairs, www.stella-maris.org.uk/Broadstairs.shtml .
Not updated on a regular basis, it does feature a useful local history page, links and news on local events. It also has local weather and some nice photos, which I'm rather disappointed to see are copyrighted and chargeable rather than available for all to share freely under the same type of non-commercial Creative Commons license available for the photos you can find in the Thanet Life archive. So I have to use one of my own photos as an illustration instead, Broadstairs in 1938.
I assume the Website title comes from the song "Broadstairs, Star of the Sea, that we used to sing as children once upon a time at the Charles Dickens School?
Certainly worth a quick interest visit.
