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.

The coffee morning includes tours around the boathouse (subject to operational commitments) an RNLI Shop stand, bric-a-brac and of course tea/coffee and cake for just £2.50 a ticket which is all helping to fund the new lifeboat crew kit. Our team will be on hand to share water safety advice, lifejacket checks, learn the best way of ‘calling for help’ in an emergency and how to ‘float to live‘ plus lots more.
