Due to dune erosion it has been necessary for Ramsgate Conservancy to close the boardwalk between Ski-Boat Bay and the Whaledeck.
The boardwalk has become unsafe but cannot be removed or re-sited until Municipality Documentation is received which at present is stuck in the “red-tape” department.
It is hazardous to by-pass the temporary fencing installed and/or to sit on the beach below it.
Please feel free to use the new wheelchair friendly pathway that starts by the new Eco-Tourism Centre (a Joint Venture between Ramsgate Tourism and Ramsgate Conservancy) next to the BP Garage, drop in and say Hi to the staff that are setting it up, and continue up to the Whale Deck Viewing Area and then come back down by the “Old” path.
Vote of Thanks
Ramsgate Conservancy would like to thank all the Sponsors / Donors to the Eco Tourism Centre project for their generous donations, without these it could not have been done.
We ask all readers to positively support the businesses who have assisted with donations, and to our Private Donors we thank you from the bottom of our hearts
