Useful Information

In each issue of the Margate Handbook, we feature a series of sections providing important information for local residents including important phone numbers, upcoming local events and details about local clubs and groups.

This section aims to collate all the information we've given to readers throughout our issues, as a sort-of knowledgebase resource for loccal residents!
