    1. CARE FOR THE ELDERLY IN THANET

      In the April issue of the new Thanet Watch magazine we’re planning to do an in-depth article about care of the elderly in Thanet, including the controversy over the Minnis Bay Day Centre. What are the standards of care in Thanet? How are the cuts going to cut services for the elderly?

      If you have information or experiences relevant to this, please get in touch. You can ring me on 01843 604 253 or email on inmeds@yahoo.co.uk. But our deadlines are pressing so please get in touch very soon.

    2. DO WE HAVE TOO MANY SUPERMARKETS?

      For the April issue of the new Thanet Watch magazine I’m working on an article about the proposals to build yet more supermarkets in Thanet – a giant new Tesco on Margate seafront and a Sainsbury’s superstore in nearby Westgate. Do we have too many supermarkets? What will be the impact on Thanet’s high streets? Let us know what you think.

      1. We need more variety of stores, not more of the same.
        It’s time business rates were lowered in order to encourage
        new shops, to regenerate the High Street, grants should made available to encourage this, too many have closed due to high
        rates.

      2. Perhaps if all Thanet supermarkets stocked and sold seaweed perhaps we would have less on our beach’s in the summer.
