Nice Things - Suzy - Credit Cémanthe Mckenzie-Hoult Ramsgate is giddy with excitement and springing into life from today (12th April) with most of our businesses opening their doors for the first time this year!  It’s been a long old winter and we can’t wait to welcome back residents and visitors to our lovely town!   I wanted to give a shout out to all our fabulous businesses and wish them the very best of luck for this season and beyond and let’s hope they never have to lockdown their premises again!

As we find ourselves in the midst of another lockdown with a distinct possibility of it being extended, I wanted to spread the word about many of our Ramsgate business owners who are offering a virtual service during this period of uncertainty.  I am sure I don’t need to tell you about the benefits of shopping locally and how much it helps our economy and I think this is more important now than it ever has been. Some of our ‘non-essential’ businesses have developed online shops through websites, others are using facebook or instagram to promote their wares and are [...]
