“Historic coast” is the theme of Kent’s Coastal Week 2012 and a packed programme of free or subsidised events for all ages will take place around the Kent coast between Saturday 27 October and Sunday 4 November (half term).
Over 50 events will be taking place right round Kent’s world renowned coast line with everything from guided walks, talks and archaeological find days to exhibitions and fun days. There will be something for all ages and interests.
To start the week, why not come along to “Historic Coast at Ramsgate” and meet the people who look after Kent’s coastal heritage. There will be stalls and activities outside Custom House, next to Ramsgate Royal Harbour from 10am – 4pm on Sunday 28 October. (FULL DETAILS OF THIS PACKED EVENT ATTACHED BELOW).
Bryan Sweetland Cabinet Member for Environment Highways and Waste at Kent County Council said: -
“ The Kent coast represents over 3000 years of history, from the Bronze Age boat discovered at Dover to the heroics of the Dunkirk ‘little ships’ which sailed from Ramsgate to Dunkirk in 1940.
Kent’s Coastal Week is wonderful opportunity to find out more in the company of enthusiasts and experts. The Kent coast continues to play an important part in the story of Great Britain and we hope to see people turn out at events right round our 350 mile coastline.”
Kent’s Coastal Week events are organised by a host of local organisations, coordinated by Kent County Council, the programme is entirely supported through external funding from the European regional development programme. (2007 - 2013 European Regional Development Fund INTERREG IVA 2 Seas programme), along with sponsorship from Southern Water and London Array.
