  1. Wishing the person with reported minor injury a quick recovery and more…
    That area is observed by many tdc cctv, so it should be solved quickly before repeat events but maybe cctv watchers are wfh or just not there. Who pays for tdc cctv ?.
    Last week someone decided to leave washing machine in full view of tdc cctv adjacent to that neverspoons. Will someone be traced and asked to pay for its correct disposal ?
    Oh and why does tdc and maybe other interested parties have cctv viewing the near by knife amnesty (and other small weapons) disposal bin ?
    Ramsgate has been gifted £ millions to spend on improving the area. Rick Everitt please sort it out.

  2. What happened to my comment stating that many towns in Wales are safer? Or is that “racist” as well???

    Political correctness gone effing mad.

    • My personal experience is that on the whole, Ramsgate is reasonably safe at any “normal” time. I would probably avoid Harbour St at 03:00 on a Sunday morning.

      • You never go anywhere else, so have nowhere else to compare it with – unlike myself, who travels to many other countries (7 so far this year alone). Trust me, Ramsgate isn’t all that great.

        • My friend was stopped by two men near Birchington Station today. They hurled abuse at her and pushed her into a bush. She uses a cane to walk. She’s too shaken up to go the police.

          • Well, phone the police on her behalf then. Why let the culprits get away with it?

            Find out what time it happened too. I’ll ask the local neighbourhhood watch if they saw anything.

            Thanks, Jess.
