June has been another busy month at the Fort. Firstly, we celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee, by lighting a beacon on top of the Fort with the help of our friends the Sheppey Pirates! A great evening was had by all.
We then had our first Open Day with a visit from local MP Kelly Tolhurst, who officially opening our restored Guardroom. The weather was kind to us and we were lucky to have lots of re-enactors on site, helping to bring the Fort to life and showing our visitors what things were like in times gone past. It was a very successful day.
We were also successful in securing a £3000 grant from Revive, from which we were able to purchase some picnic tables, a new till system, some display equipment and uniforms for children to dress up in on our Open Days. Thank you Revive.
