The Margate Caves Community Education Trust established

The Friends commission an Options Appraisal for the site, working with a consultant to develop a first stage business plan. One of the recommendations is that the governance structure needs to be more robust to manage such a major project and ensure the public benefit objectives of the group are properly delivered.

So in November The Margate Caves Community Education Trust (TMCCET) is formed and registered with the Charity Commission.

The Trust continues the Friends’ work to secure a long lease on the site from Thanet District Council, develop plans for the site and raise the funds needed to re-open the Caves.
