The group of ‘Stakeholders’ were made up of local business people, members of Thanet District Council, Historic England, Kent School of Architecture (University of Kent), Georgian Brickwork and Standard Heritage, to name but a few. But for those of us on the ‘ heritage skills development ’ table the most exiting attendee was Glen Young – director of the Heritage Craft Alliance.
We (Standard Heritage) will be offering as much support as we can in setting up a heritage skills centre in Ramsgate.
If you are a local crafts person and you are interested in ‘up-skilling’ so that you can carry out appropriate works to our rich historic environment, please feel free to contact us, and we will keep you updated and hopefully get you some training in the near future.
