Not many bars or cafes can match the views from Margate Café G, as you watch the world go by, and take in the sights and sounds of the harbour and Old Town, life seems to slow down a pace. Margate is home to some wonderful eateries. Here at Café G located in Margate's Old Town is the fully licensed Café bar specialising in fresh pastries, light bites and a great range of Fairtrade products. The day at Café G begins at 7.30am with the glorious aroma of freshly ground coffee. Café G boasts a full range of speciality coffee including Café Latté, Cappuccino, Café Americano, Mocha, and a selection of flavoured coffee. There is also a fine array of teas, including herbal and fruit teas, hot chocolate served with cream marshmallows and topped with chocolate sprinkles, as well as milkshakes and soft drinks. Of course, the efficient service will ensure you are not left waiting, but if you really can't spare the time to sit and relax in the elegant décor watching the world go by there is a takeaway service. As owner of Café G I feel that Margate is more than ready for a Café of this calibre.

THE STRANDINGS OF THE -CLAUDINE’ AND ‘WESTMINSTER’ AT MARGATE. BY MICK TWYMAN The accompanying engraving is well-known to those of us with an interest in maritime history. We tend to take it for granted that the story behind it is equally well-known, but a feature in a ,local paper a few years ago made it plain that was not the case, so here is the tale of what actually happened to them. The ‘CLAUDINE’ and ;WESTMINSTER’ were East Indiamen on the final leg of the long voyage home from the East Indies in convoy with another vessel of the company when disaster struck, causing them to be struck ashore at Palmer Bay( now Palm Bay) in the badly damaged conciliation as depicted. Having braved the worst weather that the oceans could throw at them, they were now in charge of pilots as they made their way up the Channel into the waters of the Thames Estuary. The date was the 22nd of November, 1840 and the weather was foul when the convoy was caught in a ferocious northerly gale which sprang up off Margate. Fighting against the high seas the two ships were driven ever closer to the coat and potential disaster. The pilots, knowing the coast well, decided that the best chance to save the ships and their valuable cargoes was to run them ashore at the spot which presented the best chance of survival, and soon the vessels, with enormous waves sweeping over their decks, were pounding through the surf over the rocks to ground safety. It will be seen that their journey to the shore had been a fraught one and both vessels had been dismasted by the fury of the storm, but thanks to the determination and bravery of the boatmen of Margate not a single life was lost. The crew of ‘ WESTMINSTER’, with her rich cargo of cotton, indigo, rice, silks and wine, was saved by the Margate Customs House boat, whilst the Margate lugger; CITY QUEEN’ skippered by William Hubbard, rescued that of the tea laden ‘CLAUDINE’. The third vessel, laden with a very valuable cargo of hardwoods and with her crew taken off by a lugger, was driven broadside onto the rocks at Kingsgate Bay. There had long been a loud clamour and agitation for a harbour of refuge this side of the North Foreland, as a great many vessels had been lost due to heavy weather in the Estuary due to a lack of such facility. Many sites had been looked at by the Admiralty and plans had actually been drawn up for a massive harbour to be built at Palmer Bay, the very spot where the two East Indiamen lay in their sorry state, but nothing else ever came of the proposal. Prominent local architectural engineer and surveyor, William Edmunds, notified the Admiralty in a letter which survives to this day in the archives that attempts were being made by the boatmen of Margate to salvage the valuable cargoes, which were expected to be eventually forwarded to London by steamship as in other salvage operations undertaken here. From records in my possession it is clear that around 70 men were engaged in these efforts, and it is equally clear from research undertaken by my colleague, Alf Beeching, that a substantial amount of salvaged goods was stored in a large warehouse situated in King Street. “WESTMINSTER” had found bottom further out in the bay than “CLAUDINE” who had been driven right up under the cliffs, making her salvage impossible until a big tide to lift her off. She remained tight during her battering making no water, unlike “WESTMINSTER” which reported 12 feet of water in her hold. She was refloated on the 7th of December, and “CLAUDINE” a little while after. Both vessels were repaired and put back into trade. On the night of the 5th of December, the King Street warehouse was burgled despite the presence of a watchman who was arrested and then released without charge! Cotton, silks, indigo and wine were stolen, some of which were recovered in London after a £25 reward brought a informer forward. To Advertise in The Margate Handbook please Phone 01843 571145

GRANDAD TRIED FOR A PART-TIME JOB Grandad found that he had lots of time on his hands and was getting bored so he applied for a job at a large Supermarket (Who shall remain nameless, in case they try to sue me), as a trolley collector or shelf stacker. He went along for his interview and was asked to fill in one of the standard application forms. Shown below is the exact copy of Grandad’s form. DESIRED POSITION: Company Chairman or Vice-Chairman, or whatever is available. If I was in a position to be choosy, I wouldn't be here applying in the first place. DESIRED SALARY: £500,000 per annum and a pay off the same as those people in charge of all the banks if I make a mess of things like they did. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle. EDUCATION: Yes LAST POSITION HELD: Target for Middle Management hostility. LAST SALARY: A lot less than I was worth. MOST NOTABLE ACHEIVEMENT: Letting down the tyres on the Directors car After he had made 200 people redundant. REASON FOR LEAVING: They found out about the above and I became number 201. HOURS AVAILABLE FOR WORK: Any. PREFERRED HOURS: 1-30pm-3-30pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS: I can make a paper aeroplane with one hand. MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER: If I had one then I wouldn’t be here. DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL DISABILITIES THAT WOULD PREVENT YOU FROM PICKING UP A 50lb SACK: A 50lb sack of what? DO YOU OWN A CAR: I think a more appropriate question would be, do I own a car that runs. HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARD OR RECOGNITION: I may already be the winner of £50,000 with the Readers Digest as I was apparently the only person in my road to be selected according to a letter they sent me. DO YOU SMOKE: On the job no, on my break yes. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN 5 YEARS FROM NOW: Living in the Bahamas on a £50,000 per month company pension, topped up by a £20,000 per month state pension. DO YOU CERTIFY THAT ALL THE ANSWERS GIVEN ABOVE ARE TRUE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE: Yes, absolutely.

Alas Grandad is still waiting to hear if he was successful.

The guest speaker was Sarah Vickery from the Shell Grotto, who gave a talk on the history of the Grotto and also about the proposed Dreamland Heritage Park. The talk was very well received and Sarah also answered questions. The A.G.M. then proceeded with the election of officers. Keith Chadband, Chairman, June Chadband elected Secretary, Mr. G. Gloor, Treasurer, Ms. S. Foad, Membership Secretary. The elected Committee are Mr. D. Lee, Mrs. B. Ensor, Mr. L. Strevens, Mrs. Strevens and Mr. P. O’Callaghan. In his address Keith Chadband said he was concerned about the future of the Association as it was proving difficult to attract new members to the Committee. He also said that this would be his last year as Chairman as he has been doing it for 15 years. Cllr. M. Wise and Cllr. C. Hart joined the A.G.M. for the last half an hour and took questions from the floor. Subscriptions are now due at £3 per single member and £5 per couple.

June in the Garden Pests are common at this time of year. Check for aphids and also leaf miners, which leave a silvery trail. Control infestation otherwise the insects will fall to the ground causing a secondary, possibly worse, infestation. If the weather is wet then check on Paeonies for paeony wilt. If stems become soft and collapse, remove dead growth to prevent further damage and dust the base with fungicide. Hardy Annuals. Thin out seedlings and plants in beds as needed. Half-Hardy Annuals. Plant the last of the half-hardy annuals and use any left over to fill gaps in other borders. Shrubs. All shrubs need a good watering in the summer months, even if you have applied mulch earlier in the year. Shrubs which are flowering on last years wood will require pruning once flowers start to die back. This includes plants such as Buddleia Alternifolia and Weigala. Climbers and Wall Plants. Prune new growth on Pyracantha to reveal flowers. Regular pruning of Ceanothus will keep it under control. Prune back Chaenomeles after flowering. Take back to 5 buds, then 2 buds in late summer. Bulbs and Corms. Spring and summer snowflakes can be moved after flowering if needed. Other bulbs should be lifted after foliage has yellowed, dried off and stored ready for replanting.

Where teams, of 6 maximum, can battle it out. The winning team then get to nominate which charity they would like to support. All monies raised on the night are then split between the winning teams charity and the ongoing charity, namely Shooting Star Children’s Hospice. Every member of the winning team receive a “Lucky Dip” lottery ticket for the coming Saturday’s National Lottery Draw, plus the “Wooden Spoonists” receive one ticket between them, and, from the first quiz held in May one of the tickets was a winning ticket, only a tenner, but next time…...well You never know. The cost is just £6.50 per person, this includes a drink on entry, plus food. Well to say just food is something of an understatement, because a veritable feast was placed In front of us all at the first quiz and, with it being a licensed bar you can purchase almost whatever drinks you fancy, it makes for a good night. To book your place, please call Daniel on 01843 225600. We need more Millionaires in the area, so do it now as places are limited.
