The Thanet Independent Councillor – formerly UKIP – is a well-known figure in the town. His ‘out and about’ photos and videos on social media are now a common sight.

He said: “In my 3 years as mayor I have taken 29,000 photos on my iPad to create a social  history of Ramsgate.

“Last night I told councillors that we now have one year left to make something happen for Ramsgate.”

The former Hereson student is a town and district councillor.

Councillor Terry Connor – Chairman of Amenities Committee
Councillor Peter Campbell – Chairman of Events Committee  and Chairman of Finance & General Purposes Committee
Councillor Jeremy Fairbrass – Chairman of Planning & Environment Committee
