In the year 1950 (or thereabouts) we lived in Reading Street, a village quite close to Broadstairs. 'Mr. Broadstairs' used to organise events such as sandcastle competitions, races and each week held a contest amongst the children to choose a 'Prince' and 'Princess' for the week. He also used to put on shows on the jetty such as variety shows and talent contests. My father - Doug Vince - worked for Mr.Broadstairs helping to run these events and also appeared in the shows doing his act as a ventriloquist. My sister and I had such happy times then. I can't remember events ever being 'rained off' although I am sure they sometimes were!
