HRH The Queen is popping over for tea

As reported by Thanet News Network (among others) Her Royal Highness The Queen is due to visit Thanet.

Most specifically HRH QE II is due to visit Margate.

Now I know that the cynics will all be asking "why would she want to do that?" But the question we should be asking is: "how can we make the most of this?"

After all how often does top brass royalty come to Thanet (much less the Queen herself)? This is a rare opportunity to see crowds in Margate during the off season.

Margate does not enjoy a lot of attractions to pull people away from the temple of commerce that is Westwood Cross but a visit from the queen could provide a significant one off boost to the area in terms of spending in preparation for the visit and on the day itself. If local businesses can obtain a good slice of the pie that could be enough to pump some life back into things ready for the winter.

Furthermore a visit from the Queen or other high ranking royals is often accompanied by the national press. This means that we as an area have a single opportunity to remind the rest of the UK that we are not only here but in need of a hand please.
