Pat On the Back

Credit where credit's due.



Walking along the beach at Westgate this morning, I noticed it was near spotless, with two council workers busily picking-up any litter left over from the weekend.

On a remarkably beautiful morning, this reflects well on the same time last year, when I was complaining about the mess. Having a clean environment goes a long way to imrpving the local quality of life and the appearance of our island and while there are many other pressing problems for the council to deal with here in Thanet, this morrning's Mediterranean like scene reflects well on the efforts made this Summer to "Keep Thanet Beautiful."

Well done!

Saw one of the giant plant bowls next to the Sea Bathing Home tipped over this morning. A traffic cone had been thrown through a telephone box window by the Station toilets. Within about 3 hours the bowl had been picked up and the worker was just clearing up the dirt and the glass from the window was being swept up. Good stuff.

The Council are doing their part now but wouldn't it be so much nicer if the people of Thanet took more pride and stopped messing the place up in the first place.

anon again!
dear little weed, it would take an awful lot of brain surgery, time, schooling, and fines to make Thanet people realise that the place they live in could be as pleasurable as Torquay or Cannes, to live in.
Shame the Police do nothing about the vandals doing so much trashing of stuff. Poor old Councillor Latchford must be going bonkers trying to cure the prob, but with '0' Police back up, he hardly stands a chance!

Many thanks to all the people who make westbay beach at Westgate such i nice place to be. That includes the cleaners, the staff at the cafe, the life guards and bay inspectors, and the friendly people of all ages who frequent the place. Roll on next summer.

I concur with your thoughts but I resent the 'Big Brother' messages on the seafront banners at Margate. What is wrong with just decorative banners?
