Saint Michael’s Day 29th September Michaelmas Day is the feast of St. Michael the Archangel . He is the patron saint of the sea and maritime lands, of ships and boatmen, horses and horsemen. He was the Angel who hurled Lucifer (the devil) down from heaven for his treachery. Michaelmas Day is traditionally the last day of the Harvest season which used to begin on the 1st August and was called Lammas meaning “Loaf Mass” Farmers made loafs of bread for their local church. This custom ended when Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic Church, and now harvest festivals are at the end of the season near Michaelmas Day To Advertise in The Margate Handbook please Phone 01843 571145

Interesting facts about Margate By Alf “Legs” Beeching Kentish Gazette.27thJan.1863. Startling Announcement On Saturday, a small Hand-Bill was freely circulated, the contents of which, certainly puzzled the inhabitants. The following is a copy-. “Margate Notice”. That no boy under the age of 20 years be allowed to save a man if he sees him drowning. A Master Mariner belonging to Margate on enquiry, it was ascertained that during the late gales, boys of all ages rushed into the Luggers and on getting to sea were found to be in the way, instead of being able to render any service though, they claimed a three quarter share. This led to the owners of several of the Luggers to issue a Bill for the purpose of informing boys under the age of 20 years of age that if they go to sea they will not be entitled to anything. Thus the matter is cleared up and the small Hand-Bill alluded to above was issued in answer to the “Owners Notice”. Margate.February.19th.1876. Sale of Hudson’s Coffee House The material’s of this house and out buildings recently purchased by the Town Council for the purpose of improving Paradise Street were sold by Public Auction by Mr George Staner yesterday as standing on the site and realised the sum of £53.

GRANDAD TRIES HIS HAND AT D.I.Y.

Grandad answered the phone to his Granddaughter Paige, she was asking Grandad if he knew anything about putting a flat pack wardrobe together because her friends Mum had ordered one and didn’t know what to do. So Grandad took the details and contacted the lady. He went around to see her and she explained that she was fed up with her husband’s clothes being left all over the place and she had decided to buy the wardrobe and put in an attempt to make him keep his clothes tidy. So Grandad read the instructions counted out all the pieces then took about an hour putting it together and getting it level. Soon it was completed and the lady was really delighted and she offered to make Grandad a cup of tea. Now the lady lives in Westbrook with the railway line at the bottom of her garden and just as a train went past there was a “Crash” from upstairs. They both ran quickly up the stairs to find the wardrobe in pieces on the bedroom floor, it wasn’t damaged in any way, just in about 6 pieces. Grandad, thinking he had done something wrong re-read all the instructions and re-assembled the wardrobe. Shortly another train passes and the wardrobe collapses again. This time Grandad takes the whole thing completely to pieces and starts the whole process again, once he finished it he shook it as hard as he could and thankfully nothing happened, the wardrobe stayed in one piece. They both went back downstairs to try to have the cup of tea, when all of a sudden as a train went past there was a “Crash, Bang” from upstairs again. They both ran up again to find the wardrobe in pieces. By now Grandad was getting really frustrated and decided that as well as putting the wardrobe together with the screws and brackets supplied he would use an extra strong wood glue, so he popped out to buy some. When he got back he put the wardrobe back together, only this time he told the lady that he would sit inside the wardrobe and wait until a train passed so he could see if anything happened or went wrong. The lady agreed with him and left him to it. As she got downstairs the front door bell rang and it was her neighbour asking her if she would come round and give her a hand with bathing her two dogs, as they were both very boisterous and it always required two people, this she agreed to do, so she shouted upstairs to Grandad and told him what she was doing, then she left Grandad to it. About 20 minutes had passed and Grandad was still there waiting for the next train, when all of a sudden he heard the bedroom door open and seconds later the wardrobe door was opened, there was the lady’s husband standing looking at Grandad. “What the bloody hell do you think you are doing” shouted the irate husband, “Well you probably won’t believe me, but I’m standing here waiting for a train”. Just in time the lady of the house returned and explained everything to her husband, who laughed his head off and apologised to Grandad for almost thumping him. Later that evening the husband called Grandad and told him that several trains had gone by and the wardrobe was as solid as a rock, so it all worked out in the end,But Grandad has decided not to accept any more DIY work as it’s a lot safer.

How to Stop Midges Flying Around Water Butts Water butts can and do attract midges and some mosquitoes. To avoid this happening float some olive oil on the top. Just enough to cover the surface with a very thin coating. After a week or two skim it off and replace with fresh oil. It may look a mess but it will not affect the water quality and I guarantee it will stop them from laying any eggs. Before you treat your water butt, remove anything floating on the top.

Because She Smiles Because she smiles It’s as though he’d walked a million miles They gave him a band A ring for her hand When they kiss The world won’t wait for this They’re freezing to try Can they look eye to eye All the lovers in the world wait for them to appear It’s Christmas every day of the year Oh will she ask her father, will he tell his mother dear He holds her in champagne Meeting places in the rain Gifts galore, time to share Holding hands daring to stare Obsessive sums of money are being parted with Will they hurry the first of June Or will it be the fifth Their friends, they have friends, they asked the good luck chimney sweep to call He said he’d do this if he could so very very soon Now the banns are read In for the night It’s a maiden flight They’d honeymoon They’d honeymoon They’d honeymoon They booked the honeymoon It’s a neat affair The only ones there

Things to do in the garden in September September is the time to begin your spring planting and enjoy the last of the summer fruits. ● Sow sweet peas in the greenhouse or a cold frame for early summer flowers next year. They'll grow as soon as the weather gets warm enough, and will be ready for planting out next spring. ● Now is the time to plant spring bulbs. Get daffodils in by mid-September, along with fritillaries, crocuses and grape hyacinths. Tulip bulbs are best left until November. ● September is the ideal time to pick apples and blackberries for home-made pies and jam. Gather blackberries away from the road to make sure they haven't been contaminated by traffic pollution, and use a stick to pull them closer. ● Migrant birds such as swallows and house martins will begin flying south for the winter so keep bird feeders and birdbaths topped up to encourage more birds to visit your garden as autumn sets in.
