'You can take the girl out of Margate...'


Our guest editor Tracey Emin spent most of her childhood in Margate on the Kent coast.

She has returned to it again and again, both in her art and in person and most recently she's been a staunch supporter of the town's new Turner Contemporary gallery, creating a neon "I never stopped loving you" sign for the gallery in homage to her hometown.

Tracey believes that the Turner Contemporary has and will play a significant role in Margate's economic regeneration and has been dismayed at what she sees as the town's "unbelievable" decline of the past 20 years, something Margate shares with other traditional seaside resorts.

She went to find out how do people in Margate today feel about their town.
