Blue Flag awards

North Thanet's MP Sir Roger Gale has this (Wednesday) morning given a warm welcome to the award of Blue Flags for Thanet's beaches.

Speaking from the House of Commons Sir Roger says;

"This very good news reaffirms my belief that Thanet in general and Margate Main Sands in particular offer the best seawater bathing in the British Isles. Switch the Turner Contemporary now drawing visitors and with the regeneration effect that that superb project has had upon the Old Town we have a great offer as a domestic tourist destination for longer family and short-break holidays that we need to capitalise upon.

Thanet now has the possibility, also, to drive the redevelopment of the Dreamland and Arlington Square sites forward and to really capitalise upon our successes.

A little sunshine would help, of course, but I maintain that Thanet is a great place to visit come rain or shine and it is up to us all to make sure that the. Blue Flags fly proudly alongside the Union Flag over The Island"
