As Government restrictions ease, in line with the planned roadmap out of lockdown, we expect an increase in the number of people visiting Thanet’s high streets (shopping areas) as well as our beaches and open spaces.

        We’ve prepared for the summer season to start three months early and want to welcome residents and visitors back to our beaches, open spaces and high streets, but crucially to do so safely.

        To coincide with the Easter Weekend, the majority of our high season preparations have already been put in place.

        The Respect, Protect, Enjoy campaign aims to welcome visitors back to Thanet and remind them (and residents) to ‘Respect’, ‘Protect’ and ‘Enjoy’ Thanet’s towns, beaches and open spaces. The concept, created by a local Thanet designer, will be displayed at prominent locations across the district including bus stops, roads to popular beaches, train stations, car parks, on litter bins and across the council’s social media channels.

        Please do the right thing: respect social distancing, wear a mask when asked, and take your litter home when the bins are full. Thank you.
