Tour de Ramsgate

Nice to see that there's an individual effort being made to promote Ramsgate ahead of the world's largest single sporting event, the Tour de France on Sunday.

Terry Painter has asked if I would sit over Canterbury for a while on Sunday afternoon, before heading off the Ramsgate and the Powerboat racing with a banner with the message "GO 2 RAMSGATE 2 DAY."

It's estimated that a billion people watch the Tour on television, so while I'm not betting on the cameras turning skywards, I'm sure the main sponsors will be a little irked by the sight of one of the Airads aircraft suddenly appearing over the cathedral,with a cheeky message just before all the cycling fun starts in Canterbury city centre as the race arrives at the finish line.

Well done Terry!
