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.

Last Sunday, about 40 people turned out from 10am for our big clean event. A good turn out, especially the Ramsgate Cubs and Sea Scouts. The sea front looked spick and span by the time they had finished.
Picture: 'The Sundowner' boat which the Ramsgate Society have stumbled across during their campaign to find and survey all of the town's war memorials.
Earlier this year members of the Ramsgate Society attended a Civic Voice workshop on its First World War Memorials Programme. During the workshop the group learned about the many different types of memorial and how to survey and add them to the War Memorials Online website.
