£1.4m in Winnings for an Unknown Thanet Person

Someone in Thanet could be missing out on £1,471,718 - an unclaimed lottery jackpot for a winning ticket purchased in Thanet.

The search is now on to find the owner, who matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday August, 2 2014. The winning Lotto numbers were 13, 23, 28, 37, 42, 45 and the bonus ball was 25. The lucky ticket-holder has until Thursday, January 29 2015 to claim their prize. says The Thanet Gazette.

I am pretty sure that I am not the winner as I do not play. If you do play double check your old tickets because you could be sitting on a fortune.

If you don't want it...

Margate to get its own council

Earlier this year we covered the councultation on parishing Margate which is something we have been saying is needed scince as early as 2009.

Now the news is that TDC are actually going ahead with the process of granting a parish council to Margate. They almost go so far as to admit that what they have been doing for Margate has not been working.

As always in Thanet not everyone is pleased with this outcome.

Thanet gets a rough ride again

Thanet once more gets the short end of the comedy stick, this time from BuzzFeed. Was this a deserved ribbing or an unfair slating?

Thanet: A week in review

So what's being going on in Thanet this week?

I don't think anyone missed that Southern Water once more dumped poo into the sea and spoiled our beaches.

We live in the South East and get a lot of rain. Southern Water can hardly have found a whole heap of rain as a total surprise. So why are they still woefully under prepared for the stuff. It is rain. It falls often.

Talking of rain falling fromm the sky it turns out that people in America (where else) willingly pay up to US$51 for hard water because it is somehow wetter or something. A well motivated business could easily bottle up our chalky stuff, ship it across the pond, import softer water from somewhere else for us to use and still turn a profit.

Well, okay, maybe...
