Activities

Aviva Community Fund - Give the Shed a Lift - please vote for Broadstairs Town Shed

We do what we can to enhance our town. We have a wide range of activities and projects, some of which are one offs and some are ongoing.

 

You might find it interesting to look at our past press releases.

 

In 2016 there's a few things underway and plenty more in the pipeline. 

 

We organise regular Community Litterpicks (during the winter months), see the Diary for details of these events and more like this that you can get involved with. 

 

The Town Team Gardening Group take care of five garden sites around the town and there's always opportunities for more people to get involved. Due to weather and so on, get togethers are usually organised at short notice, let us know if you'd like to be told when the next one is or keep an eye on here or our Facebook group for dates

 

The Harbour and Seafront group are busy with plans to restore Broadstairs iconic harbour and seafront, for which they need to raise more money so please consider supporting them via the button on the right. 

 

The Station Crew are working with Southeastern on brightening up Broadstairs station

 

We are active in helping to steer a new Neighbourhood Plan for Broadstairs and St Peters and also engaging with the Local Plan as well as the Coastal Communities Team. 

 

The Broadstairs Town Shed is a Town Team project, aimed mostly at older men though everyone is welcome. The Shed has been up and running over a year now and has expanded into a larger site, The Big Shed on the edge of town, to accommodate more members, having outgrown original Little Shed in Pierremont Park.  After lots of work to make this new building fit for purpose we are fundraising to install a lift - we have a chance to win £15,000 from the Aviva Community Fund, please vote for us here - everyone gets ten votes in this fantastic scheme, you don't need to be an Aviva customer to vote -  and we could be one of 800 projects who will benefit!  

 

Broadstairs Summer Sounds are concerts at the bandstand featuring some of our top local musicians and a great community atmosphere.  We have organised these events since 2014 to help celebrate our community and bring everyone together.  

 

Follow the links on the right to find out more about any of our activities and ideas for things we can do together - please get in touch if you'd like to get involved with any of them, or if you have something else you'd like to get Town Team support for!

 

We're a friendly bunch and always really pleased to make contact with anyone new. Whatever your skills and interests and whether you can give perhaps an hour once in a while or you are able to make a more regular commitment we'd love you to be part of what we're doing.
