How will Thanet look in 20 years’ time and how can you get access to the services that will make that vision a reality? That’s what local people can find out at a special event at Thanet’s Gateway Plus.

Vision 2030 is a free event that takes place on Friday 23 July from 10.00am to 4.00pm and is based around the council’s vision document, which sets out how it sees Thanet looking 20 years from now.

People can learn more about the major developments expected to take place during that time, with information available about Turner Contemporary, Dreamland, Manston Airport and the London Array windfarms. There will also be a talk about the Dreamland project by its Director, Jonathan Bryant from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

Zumba dancing will help launch the event at 10am and there will be music from Luke Jackson, The Frontline, Funk and The Two Tone Baby, three local bands from local colleges. Art work will be provided by local schools and college students. Photography will be provided by Anastasia Miller-Kurakin, Catherine Drains and Steve Allan. The day also sees the launch of the library’s summer reading challenge called Space Hop, the biggest reading event for children in the UK.

You will also be able to get information from a range of services, including Adult Education, Thanet College, Connexions and East Kent Itec. Representatives will also be there from Maximus, who give support to the long term unemployed to get back into work, the Primary Care Trust’s Health Trainers and the NHS Fit for Work team. Trainers from TNG and SES will be running a Job Search Club from 11am to 12pm for those looking for new employment opportunities.
