Ramsgate New Year’s Eve fireworks cancelled


The only organised fireworks display on the isle for New Year’s Eve has been cancelled.

Ramsgate Town Council organised the event, with the display due to take place over the harbour at midnight.

But the event has now been cancelled on the advice of the firework compnay due to predicted high winds this evening.

A message from Ramsgate Town Council says: “Sadly, high winds have stopped play for the fireworks this evening! On the advice of the fireworks company, the winds would make it too dangerous. They also advise against people using fireworks at all this evening.”
