Stories from the Edge of the North Kent Coast by Simon Moores.
I trust we will not have more of the 'great unwashed' on our streets as a result of this calamity.
Cascade of water on Saturday following a burst pipe led to complete failure of electrical systems including the lifts.By Saturday afternoon, all residents were evecuated either to Council premises in Ramsgate or local hotels.My thanks to Council officers and local hoteliers who responded.By Sunday morning, tenants were accomodated at the Winter Gardens while their medical needs were dealt with and pets ect seen to.Following Sunday Lunch, Council Officers arranged more perminent accomodation. The building has been made secure and patrols organised. It is thought that it will be two days before tenants will be able to return.
The three-inch asbestos pipe supplying water to the tank on the roof split lengthwise, presumably there is also one in Kennedy House waiting to split. I don’t think the problems of huge buildings that are not made from traditional building materials can ever be solved economically. We, the taxpayers pick up the tab, all of us the social and environmental problems, Trove Court, Turner centre, Pleasurama Development, Westwood Cross.
