It's with great sadness that I write that Mick Twyman, the founder of Margate Historical Society died suddenly yesterday morning. Mick was a tower of knowledge about Margate. My first meeting with him was typical Mick. He presented me with an original photograph of my house, taken in the Victorian era. A picture no one else had seen! It's something I will always treasure along with all the help he gave me in researching the Zion Chapel Burial Ground. It's a great loss and my thoughts are with Mick's friends and family at this sad time.
