Local community activities

There are more opportunities for local community groups/visitors, and schools to have their own events or activities planned for a small cost, in addition to the Thanet Coast Project events: 

Destination Thanet Coast (2015-17)

This project was funded through the Coastal Communities Fund and aimed to establish a more sustainable events programme for local groups and visitors to access our coastline - Thanet's largest open space.  The project aimed to build capacity for volunteering, and included both natural and historic heritage components. Keep a look out on the Thanet Tourism's pages Our Coast and included a free educational toolkit and in their Things to Do & what's On sections.

The Thanet Coast Project can assist with your educational excursions to the Thanet Coast - with setting up and running activities such as 'Seashore Safaris' (looking at the shorelife diversity and adaptation on the Thanet Coast's chalk reef) to 'Scavenger Hunts' and 'Beach Cleans'.
