Westgreat News

Reader Kevin Crace, Saviour of the Westgate Shed, er, Pavilion, writes:

Would you thank your readers for supporting the Westgate Pavilion Demelza House Children’s Hospice charity night last Friday, which I’m glad to tell you raised in excess of £2,500. Additionally, we also collected more than 50 soft toys and games, which will be sent directly to the children, so as to reach them in time for Christmas.

Should any of your readers have any toys, teddies (new only please) or money that they would like to donate, then please contact me at the Pavilion, so we can arrange collection. I’m glad to advise we are now looking at additional ways that we can support this truly worthwhile cause.


Good on yer Kevin! According to the Chief Executive of Thanet Council, only half a dozen people read this blog, so I'm glad the ECR 6 proved so generous. If only Smyths, the new toy shed out at Westwood Chaos, were to match their generosity. Now that really would make for a fairytale ending to this particular toy story!

How does Richard Samuel, Chief Executive of TDC know only six people read the blog? I know from conversations I've had that councillors as well as the general public read the local blogs to find out what's really going on in the area.

Well apparently after the last time his dictums were leaked on ECR there was a bit of a witch hunt among his apparatchiks. However, not wishing to seem publicly bothered, he brushed it all aside at the recent managers' meeting at the Winter Gardens with the comment that he had asked around and only 'half a dozen' people read ECR, so he couldn't care less (right!).

In the old days he used to recommend Thanet Life as the only local blog worth reading.

What was Thanet Life?

I think Ezekiel and his conjoined twin probably peruse ECR daily to find out the latest satire (at least I hope they think it's satire).

I think ECR is probably in hiding a bit like the guy who wrote that book about the Naples mafia just in case Sandy sends the heavy mob round.

Rumour has it that comments from 'Our Leader' about Dickie's site are unprintable. He and his conjoined twin 'Woger'reportedly 'froth at the mouth' when describing ECR. I'm so pleased that this is the case and that they clearly don't mind 'Strife'.
