The success of our bi-monthly talks programme at the Yacht Club has encouraged us to plan a run of three more to highlight the role of other voluntary and community organisations. We will be in touch again with more details before each event but you may like to put these in your diary now. The venue for the 21 May talk has changed to the Oak Hotel.

The Ramsgate Society arrange litter picks around Ramsgate town and by the seaside together with the Ramsgate Litter Forum, the Guides, Sea Cadets and staff from the local McDonalds.
The next litter pick in Ramsgate will take place on Sunday 13th October 2019 from 10am to 1pm. These events take place in April and October each year.
All welcome to join us at 10am at the Clock House in Ramsgate Harbour where equipment will be handed out and participants briefed about health and safety before the start of the event. The equipment for the event is kindly provided by Thanet District Council and Ramsgate Town Council
We had a record turn out last time and I reckon we'll beat it this year.
Ramsgate Sea Front Shelters August 2019
In May 2011 The Ramsgate Society took on the job of renovating fourteen Victorian Sea Front Shelters that had fallen into disrepair. The Society raised around £540,000 to undertake the work with grants from The Heritage Lottery Fund, The Sainsbury Foundation and other grant making bodies. As part of the scheme Thanet District Council granted a lease to the Society with an obligation to maintain the shelters in good condition.
Please find below a copy of the two final submissions to the Examining Authority from The Ramsgate Society.
