Happy 40th Birthday Thanet District Council
In the next couple of weeks it will be the 40th birthday of Thanet District Council. Born on the 1st April 1974 thanks to an act of parliament. The birth was a result of the forced marriage of the two local historic boroughs of Ramsgate and Margate and somewhere along the line cousin Broadstairs was involved. Watching TDC growing up has been entertainment in its own right especially the long list of naughty boys that have passed through the ranks that just cannot behave. They say life begins at forty and going by the article on page 7 of this weeks Isle of Thanet Gazette the wild child is not going to give up its motorbike and hang up its leather jacket that easily. God save TDC.
