The Kent Website since 1999
A new event is to be held in Kent on Saturday, 13th September. The Flambeau Open Day, which will include fairground rides, local stalls, games, a music stage, food court and bar, is being staged by local company Flambeau Europlast.
The firm, based in Manston Road, Ramsgate, employs 120 people and is holding the one-day fair to give something back to the community in Thanet. Proceeds from the event will go to local charity ‘Thanet Families In Need’.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to take time out from the fun and excitement of the Fair to tour the factory, which makes a wide range of plastic products for a list of well-known Blue Chip clients in the industrial, automotive and retail markets with products ranging from watering cans to life-like duck decoys.
Flambeau Managing Director, John Wingfield said; "I am really looking forward to the Flambeau Open Day on 13 September and to welcoming visitors to what I think will be a fantastic event. I am also delighted that we are able to offer members of the public the chance to tour our facility in Ramsgate and see products being made from plastic granules.
Flambeau has been a significant employer here in Thanet, since we arrived in 1999 and we could not have done this without the support of the Ramsgate community. Through the sheer hard work of everyone involved we have earned the right to look for new premises to allow us to expand and maximise opportunities to grow and take on more staff.
We want to give something back to the community, so proceeds from the Flambeau Open Day will go to 'Thanet Families in Need', an excellent charity providing real help for local people when they most need it."
Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Cllr David Green, said; “Flambeau is a significant local employer that has continued to grow despite the challenge of recession. It’s great that they’re holding an event to give something back to the local community. The council will continue to offer our support where we can and hope a bright future for the company will mean even more opportunities for our local workforce.”
The Flambeau Open Day will take place on Saturday 13th September in Manston Road, Ramsgate from 10am to 5pm. Entry is £1 for adults, 50p for children and concessions and includes a tour of the Flambeau manufacturing plant. Free onsite parking will be available.
