There was something very reassuring about seeing Ramsgate Town Council at work putting up the Christmas lights when I popped out to the post office today. Like there was still hope for us all that normal life can resume. But at the same time I felt sad when they said that there would be no switching on event this year. I loved last year’s event, and felt so proud of Ramsgate for being so community minded. Christmas is going to feel very empty this year without all these events. Oh well, at least we have the lights.
