Western Heights Preservation Society Update
- 5 August 2012 13:57Rather disappointed with the closure of the threads on the Western Heights, WHPS is a very hard working dedicated charitable group which does it's best despite the endless red tape, limited funds and most of our volunteers having full time jobs to contend with
I have tried to be open as possible with regards the discussions to try and quash misinformation, circular arguments and constant contradictions which make sensible discussions very awkward....
Here is a new thread that I would like to keep positive to share the information of the work of WHPS, upcoming events and news....Been nice knowing you :)
- 5 August 2012 14:00Firstly Friday saw work nearing completion on the 'cookhouse' in the Drop Redoubt. A KCC grant that was secured last year has seen the roof repaired and a new bitument layer added, and most recently the bars added to the windows and door
This will provide us with a secure dry store for our tools and also a dry shelter for our volunteers on our workdays. Very many thanks to Paul from the Kent Underground Research Group who built the bars for a cost which would be a fraction of any commercial rates
Been nice knowing you :)
- 5 August 2012 14:02Secondly
As mentioned we have the planned public meeting on Wednesday - if anyone would like to attend please feel free to coming along though if you can let me know that will help get an idea of numbers
Been nice knowing you :)
- 5 August 2012 19:33Positivenes is what we need on the Heights.
Good Luck on the meeting on Wednesday Paul - I'll come along if I can.

- 6 August 2012 12:18Excellent work all round !
- 6 August 2012 12:42Trivia for all: Interesting on that picture showing the new bars, how you can see the dark Victorian brickwork of the original building and the light C20th brickwork of the WWII phase.
Not a lot of people know that !

Meet the Western Heights Preservation Society
Open Public Meeting – All Welcome
Dover Discovery Centre (Library)
Wednesday 8th August
7:00pm for a 7:30pm start
The Western Heights Preservation Society would like to let you know about our past achievements, our stance on the proposed China Gateway International development and the National War Memorial, our upcoming projects and our future aspirations.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning on attending to help us get an idea of numbers.
As Paul has said, it's not essential to email in advance just helpful; the most important thing is to come along and listen.
The Western Heights Preservation Society don't OWN the Heights, but they do care passionately about them; their volunteers work very hard every month to keep them as good as they can for their open days; come along and find out all about them and their hopes and aspirations for the Heights.
Hopefully see you there.
