NEWS

Grotto and Caves receive funding


Some great news today, that we have received £48,200 from the government Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.


We made the application in partnership with our friends at the Margate Caves. The funding will keep both the Grotto and the Caves open over the winter and ensure we can both retain all our staff. It will also allow us to work on staff sharing programmes, to make both organisations more effective, adaptable and efficient. Plus, it means we can embark on some joint marketing to maximise our appeal to visitors, which is particularly important right now, with so many Thanet attractions closed.


You can read the full story here in the Guardian.
