The Margate Historical Society

In December 2008 the Margate Historical Society published their last magazine, but the Society never really wound up as an organisation, all the society did was cease publishing and ceased collecting subscriptions in fact we donated all the remaining funds to the local hospice. The organisation remained dormant but the core members remained active researching and answering enquiries and more or less continued with our pledge to seek and conserve the History of Margate. Mick Twyman the former editor and the most knowledgeable living person on the history of Margate allowed me to publish articles and a few photographs on my blog. The response has been good in the wake of the closure of the Margate Museum .
Recently I was approached by Lynn Jackson who came up with the idea of the Margate Historical Society starting up again with it's own Heritage website and putting our entire archive and collections on the web with the intention of detailing the History of Margate for people living both in and outside the area.
The general consensus is yes and following a get together with Lynn later this month the Margate Historical Society will be resurrected and online in the near future.
