April 2018 Group Meeting Update
A bumper audience travelled back in time to explore the history of Kent Seaside Resorts including Herne Bay, Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs guided by the very knowledgeable Mike Bundock. It was lovely to see these resorts in their heyday with packed beaches and hotels and all manner of entertainment provided but sad to lament that so much has changed.As usual our Programme Organiser Christina Tyler will provide a full report shortly.
