Worshipful Mayor of Ramsgate Organises Drinks and Mine Pie Morning For Community Groups

It was our honour and pleasure to be invited by the Worshipful Mayor of Ramsgate, Raushan Ara to attend her Drinks and Mince Pie Morning at the Ramsgate Town Council Chambers on Monday (9th December). John Homer (RNLI Community Safety Advisor) really enjoyed the event which enabled him to chat with other community groups and look back on the very busy years community safety team activity.

We would like to thank the Mayor, Raushan Ara for inviting our team to this fantastic event and to the Town Council PA for planning and organising the event.

Mayor of Ramsgate – Civic Reception

Two members of our Community Safety Team were privileged and honoured to attend the Mayor of Ramsgate, Councillor Raushan Ara’s Civic Reception at the Salvation Army Hall on Thursday evening. The evening marked the official Mayoral ‘Declaration of Acceptance of Office’.  A large number of the community were invited along from a variety of fantastic groups to celebrate it along with local diginitaries and former Mayor’s.  It was fantastic to have the Mayor’s respective Chaplain’s conduct prayers: Carl Whitewood (Lieutenant Corps/Church Leader Salvation Army), Nasir Hurue (Al-Birr Community Centre and Mosque), Fr John Chater (St George the Martyr, Ramsgate) and Rabbi Cliff Cohen (Thanet and District Reform Synagogue).

A wide range of community groups who do so much to help the local area were awarded certificates of appreciation from the Town Mayor including the organiser of the Ramsgate International Film Festival, Friends of Ellington Park, Winterstoke Association, Thanet Winter Shelter and the Ramsgate Art Group to name a few.  We were thrilled to learn that the Mayor has selected the RNLI Ramsgate as one of her chosen charities for her term of office.

We would like to pass on our sincere thanks to Councillor Raushan Ara, the Town Council Clerk and Staff for organising the event and for inviting us along. We would like to wish Councillor Ara well in her term of office as the Worshipful Mayor of Ramsgate Town.
