Margate Civic Society "The love of our town leads us" Copyright © 2007-2015 Margate Civic Society   All rights reserved Last updated 4th April 2015 Welcome to our website Clock Tower book.jpg War Memorials Wings over Westgate front cover final.jpg

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 14th May, when we will announce the winners of our prestigious Town Pride awards, and present them with certificates and plaques.  Following the presentation, our guest speaker James Brazier will be talking about Operation Dynamo, the evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940, in which Margate played a large part.

We will again be participating in the national Civic Day, on Sunday 21st June. We will be in the Droit House exhibition area and will be showing artefacts and giving information about the First World War as well as Margate’s role in the evacuation of Dunkirk (Operation Dynamo) in 1940.  We hope that members of the public will bring in their own artefacts.  More details to follow.

Copies of our books “Wings over Westgate” by Geoffrey Williams (the story of the Westgate Royal Naval Air Station during the First World War) and “Margate Clock Tower” by Mike Bundock are available from Michael’s  Bookshop in Ramsgate.


2015 Town Pride Award nominees are shown on the Town Pride page.

Judging is taking place and the winners will be announced at our meeting on Thursday 14th May.
