The events are supported by the Broadstairs Chamber of Commerce and Thanet council.
Thanet council has launched a shop and eat local campaign this Christmas in a bid to boost Thanet’s local economy.
For every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business, 63p stays in the local economy, compared to 40p with a larger business.
The campaign includes Thanet’s first Shop Local Advent Calendar – unlock offers via thanet.gov.uk/advent-calendar –
and a weekly public vote on the best festive shop window displays across Thanet. The winning business will be named ‘Local Business of the Week’ on community radio station Academy FM.
The push to shop local also includes free Saturday parking at:
Mill Lane Car Park – Margate
Harold Road Car Park – Cliftonville
St Peter’s Park Road Car Park – Broadstairs
Cannon Road Car Park – Ramsgate
