We have received the great news that, along with the Shell Grotto, we have received £48,200 from the government Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.
We made the application in partnership with our friends at the Shell Grotto. The funding will keep both the Caves and the Grotto open over the winter, as much as we are allowed, and ensure that we can both retain all our staff. It will also allow us to work on staff sharing programmes, to make both organisations more effective, adaptable and efficient. Plus, it means we can embark on some joint marketing to maximise our appeal to visitors, which is particularly important right now, with so many Thanet attractions closed.
