Yesterday day saw the unveiling of the Billard Room.It has been restored very well .The Officers Of DDC were there for the unveiling.DDC have put out several press releases which you can view.It will be used for private functions .There is a hire fee.It all looked lovely .No popping in for a coffee as days of yor .I haven’t been down there of late I refuse to call it Kearsney Parks.I did request a hand rail as it is difficult to walk down from Chilton Way .No money left in the budget .I can only go if someone takes me in a car.
it would have been nice to have been invited but it was DDC Officers and the lovely ladies who designed the panels which adorn the walls .Still that’s progress.Its a lovely attraction .

Agreed Sue. Kearsney Abbey and Russel Gardens are absolutely worth a visit (when I was there last year I was talking to a wildlife photographer who had crossed half the country to try to photograph kingfishers there).
If I had a magic wand and could build one thing in Dover (without costing a fortune on yet another White Elephant quarter) it would be to build a 'Sustrans Standard' cycle/walk/buggy/pram/mobility scooter path from the seafront to Kearsney Abbey complete with Toucan crossings wherever it was forced to cross a road.
It's how we are going to move around towns in future so why not build it now so we can put in offshoots along Folkestone Road, up Tower Hamlets and the Buckland Estate etc later?
