Got a nice reminder from the folk organising the Empty Shops Initiative event in Margate (30th April 2010 from 12.30 on Margate's Harbour Arm www.margateharbourarm.co.uk).
"Dan Thompson and every one at We Make Margate are welcoming people to come and find out more about how to use any empty space to revitalise a community.
The event is very informal, so no one will miss anything. There will be a display of photos of many shops both empty and revitalised and a great opportunity to find out about www.bookleteer.com which is a great way of community publishing. Bring some of your pictures of empty shops and you can have a try on the day.
The History walk from Margate Train station which starts at 10.30am. Look out for Kate with a name badge on! If you have not yet confirmed your place for the walk please do so by return of email to firstname.lastname@example.org Don’t forget your camera as there will be lots of great photo opportunities and to help you local photographer Kim Conway http://www.
