Thanet Star

GEEK 2013 is open

I'm posting this to you from inside GEEK 2013.

I will be here most of the day so if you want to meet up and have a chat with one of Thanet's blogeratti then look for the tall hansom chap in the top hat. Let's see how many people come and say hi.

That said yesterday's opening ceremony was very good. I said hello to Will Scobie (Margate's very young mayor) as well as Iris Johnston who both stopped by Pie Factory in Margate Old Town to see what was going on. I'd have liked to challenge Will to a game of custard punching (you had to be there) had I the chance.

Pictures to follow.
