Feedback emanating from the business community of Margate is that some experienced a late but better than expected season.Most accommodation establishments reported shorter booking at a time but very good occupancy rate throughout.
In 1980, local business people rallied together to form the Margate Business Association (MBA) in an endeavor to make Margate a better place, not only for the residents but also for the many people who have chosen to make Margate their holiday destination. Our Association is fully aware that the success of our region from a business point of view is not measured on the performance of only a few successful business people, but on the combined efforts of all participants.
The Annual Sardine Run – ‘’The Greatest Shoal on Earth’’
Tuesday, 31 May 2011 12:14
The Sardine Run is much more than numerous glistening shoals of sardines moving up the coast. It involves and affects many marine animals and can be witnessed from the shore, the sea or the air. And from above or below the clean waters of the Indian Ocean. Great White Sharks, Common Dolphins, and Cape Gannets are four key predators that pursue the shoals northwards along the east coast of South Africa.
