It is with a great sadness that we announce the death yesterday (14th September 2010), of Mr Mick Twyman founder member and Secretary of the Margate Historical Society. This was very sudden and we will all miss him and his expert knowledge of Margate and its environs.
He had just completed the October Society Newsletter, which will be published as usual on the 14th October, and we hope to have some additional obituaries to include with this issue. The Society was developing well since the AGM in April and we all had plans to make its archive more accessible and widely used. This will go one in his memory and will be called the 'Mick Twyman Bequest'.
Mick loved Margate with a passion not felt by the many, but he was able by his example to fire others imagination and thirst for history in general and Margate History in particular. We are working on setting up a suitable tribute to the life long work of Mick and anyone wishing to be included should contact The Society via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call 01843 223300
Please feel free to send your memories of Mick to this blog site, and we will be happy to post them for all to see.
Administrator & Acting Secretary
