Location - Margate High Street
Venue - Poportunity Open Day with Mary Portas and Margate Town Team
Date - 20th October 2012
As the Official Margate Town Team Photographer I was asked to attend the opening of the new Poportunity Pop-Up shop opened in Margate High Street on 20th October 2012.
This was a venture developed along with Mary Portas and The Margate Town Team to help promote, advertise and boost Margate and also to fill empty shops and units along the High Street.
The day was filled with entertainment, street shows and local buskers and the BBC and ITV News crews were there to film the days events. Mary Portas cut the ribbon of the new Poportunity shop and it was lovely to see Margate so busy and filled with shoppers and locals plus visitors from London who had taken advantage of Mary Portas special price train tickets.
I will continue to be working alongside the Margate Town Team as their photographer and I have included a list of local people who were also involved in this ground breaking day in Margate High Street.
