Ramsgreat Ideas Flooding In

A big 'Mwah!' to everyone who's been sending in their plans for the snappily titled Richard Eastcliff Award For A Grand Design For Ramsgate. Here's a couple of the best so far.

Reader Glenn writes: 'I recently went on holiday to China, and was very impressed with the visitor centre for the famous Terracotta Army. Outside the centre you can have your photo taken as one of the terracotta soldiers. Given our area's connection to the Vikings, wouldn't it be great if people could pose on the seafront as a Viking!"

And a reader who goes by the name of 'Krystal' writes: 'I read that the Motor Museum (West Cliff Hall) was once a venue for a Rolling Stones gig. What better tribute than to turn it into a Museum of Rock?' He's even sent me a photo of himself in his, er, curator's uniform.

I think the viking idea is pretty cool.

How about we put sandy beach or one of the other councillors in St Peter's stocks once a month so visitors ( and i suspect the odd thanetonian or two) can throw wet sponges or rotten tomatoes at them? Or we could put up a sign as you enter Margate saying "Abandon hope all ye who enter here"

If Michael Child's calculations are correct, your headlines may be omly too apt. At least for the Pavilion and the doomed Pleasurama development.
