Prayers Come True For West Cliff Hall

Hallelujah! According to today's Thanet Sadscene, Ramsgate's crumbling West Cliff Hall has finally been leased. The Global Generation Church will be running it as a community venue, and is going to spend the next year renovating the dilapidated building. They're promising a juice bar, cream teas, rock school and a pie factory (bit ambitious that last one if you ask me).

Council leader Sandy Beach, who's pictured on the front of the paper handing over the keys, must be praising the lord that yet another eyesore has been sorted in time for the local elections.

Curses! First the library rebuild, now this. No sooner do I knock something than it gets put right!

So, we are getting yet another Community venue! First the Theatre Royal, then the Granville, now West Cliff Hall. Is there enough Community to go round?

I wonder how the local residents feel about 300 yobs pouring out onto the streets at 10:00pm most nights? Have they been consulted?
Better that than King Street though!

How very true !!
As I understand it as yet no lease or agreement has been signed, so why the sudden rush of publicity ?? something to do with a certain event on 3rd May perhaps ?

"I have even more of a greater determination now to live my life in the knowledge and awareness of the presence of God, to not be a mundane Christian but to be a radical disciple driven by love for my Lord. I want God’s Kingdom to come in my life, and I want to carry that wherever I go."

I am a little freaked out by how a fundamentalist Christian group is being given the keys to one of Ramsgate's finest buildings? TDC had other offers on the table. The above quote from their parent website, Pioneer.

Do you not read previous posts?

THERE IS NO LEASE / AGREEMENT / ARRANGMENT / NOD & WINK OR WHATEVER TO LET THIS BUILDING TO ANYONE AT ALL.

The paper reports that the lease agreements were signed yesterday.

It is rather strange isn't it how a certain Mr E just happened to be in Ramsgate (have you ever seen him here before)for a photo opportunity a week before the local elections!

How can they find money to pour into theatres and buildings in Margate, and then all we get here in Ramsgate is a vague promise that some church will give West Cliff Hall a lick of paint? I'm not a Little Ramsgater, but honestly! All the money and attention seems to go to Margate, meanwhile here in Ramsgate our cliffs crumble, our public buildings rot, our eyesores stay eyesores and our lift stays shut.

Boredstares got an entire new lift a few years back - ours doesn't work because, apparently, 'they' forgot to order a spare part. Just like 'they' did last year.

Perhaps we should consider getting rid of the Tory spare part who's currently in charge of these things.
