The closing date for our petition asking Thanet District Council to support the Friends’ efforts to regenerate Ellington Park under the auspices of a £1 million Bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund has passed. We sent the petition sheets off to the Council earlier today. They will now check the petition to make sure all of the signatures are valid, so, although we cannot put an exact figure on it, the final number of signatories was around 2,500!
We would like to thank everybody who took the effort to sign the petition, and especially to those who spent considerable time and energy garnering signatures across the Isle. We needed 1,000 names to trigger a debate by the Full Council and it looks like we’ve done that and more!
We will keep you updated on what happens!
