Friends and Family Fun Day
16 August, 2008

The day was well attended by the public and Friends of the Trust.  We would like to thank all those who participated and volunteered!  Especially our Chair Susan Marsh and her husband Eric Marsh.  The day would not have been possible without the support of Sarah Vickery, proprietor.

The Margate Civic Society Walk lead by Tony Snow, started in Margate Old Town and included the Shell Temple.  Grotto Historian Gretchen Cornwall gave the group a tour of the mysterious site.  Fellow Historian, Mick Twyman was also on hand to show visitors the unique Temple.


Children were treated to shell jewellery making by volunteers  Dave Collard and Claire Blackwell.

Also included on the walk were the Shell Ladies Old Town Trail.  These fabulous creations graced Margate's streets every weekend through the summer.  The Grotto hosts its very own Lady.  See www.theshelllady.co.uk for more

Entry to the fantastic Shell Grotto was free all afternoon along with refreshments.
