Do you use, visit or value the green spaces in Dover? We need your help to make them even better. For the last five years the Up on the Downs Landscape Heritage Lottery Funded Partnership has been doing fabulous work to conserve and celebrate the landscape and heritage of the Town. In fact, it’s been so good that they want to keep going with new projects and more work to support and build on their success.
The Up on the Downs Team and partners are making sure that the grazing animals on the land they care for are healthy and well looked after, the chalk grassland is being managed and shelters are being used and maintained. The team are also working hard on:
· Applying for European funding to attract more tourists to the area and provide work training for local job seekers
· A River Dour Project to help us all understand more about our special river and rare chalk streams
· Making the Town Council land at High Meadow better for local people including better access for all. The last few years have seen a huge amount of work done to bring back the chalk grassland and grazing to the Meadow and now we need your ideas to make sure that everyone can enjoy a visit all year round. High Meadow is great for outdoor adventures…….story telling circle ……….it’s a big space and there is room for just about anything you can imagine ……….so just let us know!
