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.
Completed order forms should be returned to Jan Holden, 6 Chatham Place, Ramsgate, CT11 7PT together with payment @ £22.00 per person (+sur charge if applicable). Cheques to be made payable to The Ramsgate Society.
The Ramsgate Society reports that the Ramsgate Coastal Community Team’s Stage 1 Bid for £1.7m from the DCLG Coastal Community Fund has been approve to go through to the next stage of the process.
There were a total of 456 bids from across the country of which only 54 were selected to proceed to Stage 2 so this is a remarkable achievement for Ramsgate.
