Stuck for something to do this wekeend?

Every September some 40,000 volunteers across England organise 5,000 events to celebrate our fantastic history and culture. It's your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – all of which are free to explore. This year there are ten events taking place in Ramsgate, celebrating the rich history and heritage of the town. This includes costumed walks guiding you round Ramsgate, and a chance to see inside the Italianate Glasshouse.

The Heritage Open Day events will take place this and next weekend - from 6th - 9th and from 13th -16th September.

Find out more about the different events.

In July 2017 the Ramsgate Society and The Ramsgate Heritage and Design Forum made a joint response to the RSP consultation on their proposal to apply for a Development Consent Order as part of their plan to acquire the Manston Airport site.

In that response we listed a number of concerns but focused mainly on the viability of their business case, and a review of the environmental impact the operation of an international fright hub would have on the town.

You'll probably know that for the last three or four years we have been supporting the Friends of Ellington Park in their efforts to secure a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant (HLF) for the renovation of this historic park. After three years we finally managed to persuade Thanet District Council to support the bid and we obtained what is called a Stage 1 Pass and a grant of £148,000 from HLF Parks For People to develop the outline proposal into a Stage 2 Bid for £1.7m to restore the park to its former glory.
As part of the ongoing Stage 2 Bid we are doing a survey of residents in the area to find out what they think are the priorities for them as park users. This will help to take residents preferences into account as we finalise the Stage 2 Bid. We would be very grateful if you could complete the on line survey form which can be found at 
Its very easy to do and if you submit the form before 30th Sept your name will be included in a draw to receive a £20 prize!
