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.


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.

We have supported Ellington Park from the start with their Heritage Lottery Fund bid so please support their project by voting online.

We have applied for some funding from Aviva [the insurance company] to create an open air performance area. The more votes, the more dosh!

Please note that although the petition below isn't a Ramsgate Society Campaign, in view of the historic connecton with the Goodwin Sands and Ramsgate, local residents and members may be interested.


The future of Goodwin Sands is under threat. A government organisation is deciding whether to dig up the sandbank to use the sand for building - it could destroy the homes of seals, marine-life and historic shipwrecks. [1] So 38 Degrees member Joanna has started a petition to save Goodwin Sands.
