/ Ramsgate Town Council Helps Monkton Nature Reserve Repair Damage After Break In
In a spontaneous response, having heard that the Monkton Nature Reserve had recently suffered a break in and thereby received damage estimated at £300; Ramsgate Town Councillors agreed to contribute £1,000 from their ward grant funds as donation to the nature reserve.
This means that not only can the nature reserve repair the damage it received from some thoughtless vandals, but it will receive additional money to continue the educational work, that benefits many Ramsgate students.
This is but one example of how a local Council can assist voluntary groups with relatively small sums of money paid out with the minimum of bureaucracy, but with full transparency.
Monkton Nature Reserve is located outside of the council area, but because it carries out valuable educational work that benefits Ramsgate students, the Council was able to ensure that the nature reserve can carry on with its educational outreach work.
