Wildlife Plan for Kingsdown Beach
– On January 18, in the Village Hall, some 65 KCG members attended the launch of a Kingsdown and Walmer Beach Management Plan for the shingle beach running from Walmer to Oldstairs Bay. Developed by Leonie Seymour and Kirk Alexander, of the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership, the draft plan will be published shortly on our website, when members will be invited to comment on all aspects of the proposed scheme.

Hoping to make a start on the plan this year, several members have already expressed interest in joining a working party, which will be organised by KCG’s flora and fauna project co-ordinator, Helen Williams. Helen is planning a meeting of interested parties in the near future and can be contacted on hmjwilliams@hotmailco.uk. or 01304 373602

Members wishing to comment on the 18th. January presentation are encouraged to email kirk.alexander@whitecliffscountryside.org.uk
