Locality film makers visit Margate

Margate Caves Site Interview Nov 2014

After receiving Community Led Project Support Funding from the Homes & Communities Agency, it was suggested that the Margate Caves Community Education Trust take part in a short film about our project.  A Locality camera crew came out to Margate on Friday 21st November to interview Sarah Vickery, Chair and Valerie Kirschner, Secretary and also spent time interviewing TDC leader Cllr Iris Johnston at the Caves site. We look forward to seeing the final cut!
