The Ramsgate Military and Heritage Trail is something we will hear a lot about in the next few months, but members of the Rotary Club had an early foretaste of things when “Mr. Ramsgate” Ralph Hoult spoke on the subject.

He told how a new educational and immersive walk to celebrate the town’s rich history is  being designed as a self-guided walk around the town, highlighting areas easily missed and could be forgotten with time.

It will be a brochure style booklet to guide walkers through the various walks

His talk was illustrated with photos of some of the areas to be included.

Before the meeting started Mr Hoult was congratulated by President Graham Larcombe on receiving an OBE from the Queen, for services to the community of Ramsgate.

He was thanked for his talk by Past President Lawrence Page.

To become a "Friend of Rotary" you have to have given very special service  to your local club.

Ramsgate now has two such members, the latest being Philip Reiser who received his  special badge from President Graham Larcombe.

He paid tribute to the tremendous effort put in by Philip with the annual Christmas collections over some years,

“Although he is not a member he has turned out to help with collections on so many evenings, more often than most of us have been able to do” said the President.

The other ‘Friend’ is the President’s wife, Cherry who looks after the club’s website and the taking of  photographs.

The club had its largest attendance for some time when former Kent and England cricketer, Geraint Jones was the speaker.

Now coaching at St Lawrence College, he spoke of his satisfaction in helping young people to find their way into the sports of their choice - not just cricket 

Born to Welsh parents in Papau New Guinea.  He later moved to Australia and some

years later to England where he played cricket for small teams before joining Kent and then England, the highlight of which was in the 2005 Ashes series against Australia where he took a long-remembered catch which led to a key victory.

His talk was followed by an incredible number of questions from members and visitors from a couple of neighbouring clubs.

He was introduced by President Graham Larcombe and thanked by John Searles.

The hard work put in by members of the Club, leading up to Christmas, has really paid off.
Due to the generosity of local people the club has boosted its charity funds in the region of £4,500.
By accompanying Father Christmas on his sleigh around the area, they also provided a chance for many youngsters (and the not so young) to greet Santa in person.
President Graham Larcombe said: “This is the biggest money raising event we do throughout the year, but it is also good to know how much it is appreciated by so many people. I am extremely grateful to all those who took part with our efforts, especially organiser, Henry Golding”.
The club will support various charities throughout the year, with £1,000 a year already pledged to YouCan Cancer Concern, which has premises in Westgate which are used to give breaks to young cancer sufferers.
