“TAKING THE TIME TO BUILD COMMUNITY TO GET TO KNOW YOUR PEOPLE WILL HAVE LONG LASTING BENEFITS.”
A Better Cliftonville is a resident-led community organisation based in Cliftonville, Margate, Kent. We work for positive change in the area, based on the needs and aspirations of residents and the issues that affect them. We work in partnership with residents, other community organisations, the local authority and other stakeholders – with the aim of delivering real improvements.
The project was started in 2004 in response to local parents request for a safe place for natural outdoor play and to grow vegetables. The project was initially funded in partnership between the Surestart Centres in Millmead and Margate, the Primary care trust and Thanet District Council, who kindly offered the derelict site.
The fresh sea air fizzes with energy in Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. Here seaside kitsch is cool and everything from ice cream parlours to boutiques has a hip, retro vibe. In the Isle of Thanet you’ll discover a rejuvenated theme park, reinvented economies and a reimagined arts and culture scene. It’s a place to be playful. Ride a vintage rollercoaster, build sandcastles, surf.
Our church houses a spacious environment for a variety of Christian Worship. We house a close-knit congregation with a strong community ethic and are always happy to welcome newcomers. Our warm and welcoming dementia friendly community centre open Monday to Saturday offers a variety of social, physical and wellbeing activities and wellbeing activities to the local and wider…
Described as the heartbeat of Margate, Dreamland was one of the UK’s best-loved amusement parks and at one time listed within the UK’s top ten visitor attractions. Comprising 16-acres, the park included a zoo, miniature railway, 2200- seat purpose built Cinema, cafés, restaurants, bars, retail and a 2000-capacity ballroom playing host to The Who, The Yardbirds, the Rolling Stones, T. Rex and Hawkwind to name but a few.
MARGATE : the original traditional seaside resort (1736), and very proud of its heritage, is enjoying a 21st century Renaissance in the wake of the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery Effect and now the developing Dreamland Historic Amusement Park. Both these have enlivened the Old Town with a variety of new eateries, drinkeries and retro shops as a further speciality.
