7th June 1880
During history there are times when a few people change the way ‘things’ are, on 7 June 1880 a few good men did just that. They broke the mould, they departed from the past and started something new, something that we all take for granted today. A civilian ambulance service, they started the Margate Ambulance Corps.

133 years on the Margate Ambulance Corps still provides a service to the local community, supporting local events.
