Location - Rokka, Margate
Date - 21st March 2013
Margate Town Team held a public meeting on the 21st March in local bar Rokka in Margate to update locals on the progress and also on the new plans for the Portas Pilot Project and the £100,000 which is to be spent on improvements to Margate High Street. Being Margate Town Teams Official Photographer, I was there to document the evening.
The bar was full to capacity and at one point the team had to turn locals away as the turn out was so much greater than expected which is definitely a positive sign of the support Margate has to improve the High Street.
The main points covered during the meeting were that of:
* New Margate Town Website and local online business directory
* Where the money has been spent and where the rest is going?
* A list of the new shops and businesses moving into the High Street
* Listening to and answering the question of the local public
Local businesses in Margate are welcome to contact me regarding photos being taking for use on the free directory listing that the Margate Town Team are having designed by SeeMyLocal.
