The Ramsgate Society were delighted to hear on 9th January that a joint application from The Friends of Ellington Park and Thanet District Council has been awarded a grant of £1.7 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF)to improve and regenerate this important community asset.
We're campaiging to help fund the ongoing maintenance of the Ramsgate Victorian shelters. We receive no public money to maintain them, rely on fund raising and have an ongoing liability to maintain them. Costs are incurred on repairing broken windows, set up and monitoring of CCTV cameras and cleaning and repairing damage. They are a major asset to the town and we do our best with limited funds to keep them in good condition.
