February 2019 - We have forged a close relationship with the Sandgate Heritage Trust
We are meeting once a month in the beautiful Reading Room of the Sandgate Heritage Trust, located in the Old Fire Station in Sandgate.
The aims and objectives of the Sandgate Heritage Trust are to preserve and utilise for the benefit of the Residents of Sandgate, Kent the historical, architectural and constructional heritage of No. 51 Sandgate High Street, known since 1883 as the Volunteer Fire Station and Reading Room. The Trust also aims to promote the Arts, Science and Education of the general public by fostering a wider knowledge and interest in local history, architecture and the environment of Sandgate and the surrounding area.
More details on the history of the Trust, their work, and their hires can be found on their Website.
The trustees of the Sandgate Heritage Trust have kindly agreed to support our work with a generous grant. In 2019 a series of informal talks will take place in the Reading Room on Saturday mornings; an annual lecture is to be given in the Chichester Memorial Hall; an annual exhibition is to given at Sandgate Library. These will be advertised on the Trust and FHRG websites.
