Ramsgate launches its own Summer of Colour with a big town clean up campaign

For the summer season, starting as schools close and family holidays begin on 24 July, Ramsgate town centre is encouraging its shops and businesses to create its own SUMMER OF COLOUR, forging a link with Margate’s Turner Contemporary gallery and its season of work inspired by Mondrian.

To accompany a deep clean of the town centre’s paving and roads, organized and funded by Thanet District Council and Ramsgate Town Council, our Town Team have linked up with the Town Promoter to encourage shops and businesses to bring much-needed colour to the town.

Whether it’s putting flowers in tubs or pots in the doorway or window, hanging bunting up to decorate, or cleaning the shop-fronts and weeding, it’s not difficult to make the whole town look brighter.

It’s all about making the town feel like summer and to encourage visitors to explore the vibrant town centre we’re lucky to have. The Town Council have put huge pots with palms around the area and planting’s been done in the brick raised beds. Now it’s the turn of businesses to show what they can do and join the Summer of Colour campaign.

Photos of premises can be sent in to the Town Promoter via suzyhumphries@talktalk.net. They’ll go online to show off the hard work being done.

At the end of the summer season, a Brighter Ramsgate trophy will be awarded to the business that the Town Council feel have created a difference to their part of town. Come on everyone, let’s show what we can do and give Ramsgate a fantastic Summer of Colour!
