Uncle Mack Memorial

We the undersigned petition the council to preserve and not remove the plaque next to Viking Bay memorializing James Summerson (also known as Uncle Mack).

We demand that the voice of the people be listened to in the preservation of our local history. A vocal few have overridden public sentiment, the democratic vote of Thanet District Councillors, and historical justice in order to destroy a central part of the identity of Broadstairs. If Uncle Mack goes today then Charles Dickens will go tomorrow, we therefore stand up against the decision to remove this plaque and stand up for old Uncle Mack himself, an entertainer who simply wanted to make the people smile.
