REGRETTABLY, THE FIREWORKS EVENT PLANNED FOR WEDNESDAY 26TH AUGUST 2015 HAD TO BE CANCELLED. THIS INCLUDED THE ACTIVITIES AND MUSIC AT THE BANDSTAND AND THE CHILDREN'S FUNFAIR.
There was an amber weather warning in force for this part of Kent with heavy rain and strong winds forecast and there was a great deal of uncertainty as to what time the weather system would clear the Broadstairs coast.
THE ORGANISERS APOLOGISED FOR ANY DISAPPOINTMENT.
They are hoping to reschedule for a Friday or Saturday in September.

Neighbourhood Plan for Broadstairs and St Peter's.
We have nearly completed Stage One: Getting Established.
What happens next?
Thank you to everyone who responded to the District Council consultation on the designation area for our Neighbourhood Plan.
Thanet District Council's cabinet will now consider the designation in the first few months of 2015, probably in June.
Why has the Town Council asked for a Neighbourhood Plan area covering all of Broadstairs and St Peter's? It carried out its own consultation, and 92% of respondents said the Neighbourhood Plan area should be the same as the boundary of the parish of Broadstairs and St. Peter's. The other reasons are set out in the Town Council's application for designation to Thanet District Council.
