Thanet Round Up

After taking some legal advice the stories I have been working on are going to be sat on for a while.

I will be publishing what I have uncovered but it will not be yet. We will have to wait for a few months. It will be worth it I hope.

So until then let us have a look at what else is going on arround Thanet.

The Kentish Gazette have published on about the new man in charge of policing while the Thanet Gazette published about the sick attack on an elderly couple (Cynthia Ratcliffe, 65, and her husband, Neil, 68) which is the same story we mentioned in Byte Sized when we linked to the original story (uncredited by the Gazette).

Meanwhile in the blogs Big News Margate has called for Alan Poole to go which is a popular sentiment accorss a lot of social media as well at the moment even given his slightly late appology. It seems a lot of people have a lot of unhappy things to say about the District Council's services.

Promote Thanet has a post about photographing the coast while Mrs Tara Plumbing looks back on the best bits of December, Michael Child talks about vandalism and Tabiboo says Happy New Year as the Twelfth Night came and went.

Gay in Thanet has a post about gay tourism which I honestly did not consider might be a thing but tourism demographic targetting of course makes perfect sense now I think about it.

Talking of tourism the #thanetcleanup twitter hash tag has gained a lot of traction lately and I noticed a call for one of our more remarkable attractions to see a clean up.

Talking of social media In Touch With Thanet has gone silent with the last post of any significance being over three days ago (a lifetime on Facebook). Hopefully In Touch with Thanet will be back to annoying the council and creating a talking point soon.

The slowly improving Thanet Finder Blogs Portal has even more recent blog updates which is where I noticed that Gilly Walker's photography blog had an interesting mention of the Turner Centre.

One interesting finding from last years Freedom of Information requests that I can freely share is the reply to a request I did not make about which streets are supposed to be cleaned and when.
