Margate Civic Society "The love of our town leads us" Welcome to our website Clock Tower book.jpg Wings over Westgate front cover final.jpg

Our November meeting will be held on 6th November and will include a talk on “Richborough Port and World War 1”, given by Dr Frank Andrews.  All members and guests are welcome; the meeting starts, as always, at 7.30pm.

Because of venue availability, our December meeting will now be held on Thursday 11th December, rather than our usual first Thursday in the month.  Following from last year’s success, this will be a Christmas soiree, with entertainment by “Serenas”, a vintage-swing duo who we are sure you will enjoy.  Tickets are £12.50, to include a buffet meal and a glass of wine.

We have recently reprinted Geoffrey Williams’ book “Wings over Westgate”, the story of the Westgate Royal Naval Air Station during the First World War. Copies are available from Michael’s Bookshop in Ramsgate at £12.50 plus p&p.  Our very successful “Margate Clock Tower” by Mike Bundock is also available from Michael’s Bookshop.

We have some very attractive Christmas cards on sale.  They feature two paintings by Christopher Alexander ARE ARCA (1926-1982), a very talented local artist; one of Margate Harbour, the other of Margate Old Town.  Each card is A5 size and packs of ten (five of each or ten of the same design) are priced at £6.00 + p&p, with all proceeds to the Society.  To purchase, please email us.
