We would like to thank all Volunteers for the huge efforts that went in to getting the Reserve open for the recent restricted Member Days. On the day, and behind the scenes, your time and help are greatly appreciated. We welcomed over 220 visitors to the site across the 4 ‘member-only’ Saturdays and the half-term ‘Scavenger Scramble’ & ‘Hallowe’en Hunt’. Quite apart from raising c£1,000 through various ways, we were able to give our visitors a much-needed positive experience and some value for their continued membership, so our thanks to them as well.
We are sorry to have to report that as of today (8/6/20), and adhering to current Government guidelines, the Thanet Conservation Trust are still not in a position to open the Reserve to the public.
We would like to thank all our previous visitors, members and friends for their understanding in this matter, as well as the members of our affiliated astronomy group, the Monkton Stargazers.
Any changes to this decision will initially be made via our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/monktonreserve/
