Ramsgate on the Isle of Thanet is a seaside resort in the south East of England. Once a major holiday destination it has become run down because of a failure to move with the times. Once a place for a wonderful holiday experience now blighted by 11 years of dereliction on the seafront and a failure of governance from Thanet District Council. This blog has been set up to give Ramsgate people a voice and to campaign for change

Military Road, Ramsgate
The Port manager has recently been promoting the alongside harbour road and is trying to attract new business to the area. The road extends from the bustop along to the west wall of the Royal Harbour and finishes with the Church which offers services and coffee.
Then comes the former home for smack boys (which doesn't mean boys being punished :))
Selling boats seems to be handy next to a harbour methinks
There seems to be at least 5 units for rent which could mean businesses such at Paolo's in Broadstairs and GB Pizza could be very welcome in Ramsgate and would revive this end of the harbour.
We went into the newly opened Chocolate Lounge and tried their coffee and cake and very nice it was.
And the chocolates look lovely.
Other business along here look to be doing well.
My suggestion for the Port Master and Ramsgate Town Council would be to get signs at the top of Jacobs ladder and at the bus stop to promote all the business along the Military Road.
