Your view: Reasons to be proud of Thanet

There should be, I feel, many reasons to be proud of Thanet.

Just recently I started a personal challenge (for reasons documented here) and part of that challenge was to find a damn good reason to be proud of the country I come from. That got me thinking about being proud of the district I come from too.

So I thought I would throw it open to you guys to help me compile a list of reasons to be proud of Thanet.

£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.

If you don't want it...

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...

Goodbye Westwood Cross Roundabout?

Now that they've built you a new road they plan to pedestrianise?

According to plans published by Kent County Council the Authority plans to remove a heavily used roundabout and padestrianise part of Margate Road.

Traffic will have to divert via Poorhole Lane unless it's a bus or a taxi.

Other plans include acquiring the road owned by Tesco and making it an official part of Thanet's roadway.
