Dover Community Regatta

The Dover Community Regatta this year down was a real success. It was incredibly well attended and I was delighted to see so many people come to enjoy a family day out.

I also found the opportunity to catch up with so many brilliant local businesses and charities including Dover Foodbank, Inner Wheel, Dover Soup Kitchen, the Ramada Hotel, Dover Big Local, the Rotary Club, Kent Go Sky Ride and the RNLI to hear about all of the work they have been doing throughout the year.

I particularly enjoyed the impressive display by the Dover and Walmer RNLI demonstrating how they put out boat fires and rescue ships in trouble on the high seas. It is very important that we support the RNLI who do such vital work all year round.

There is so much going on in Dover at the moment. Burlington House coming down will do even more to take the town forwards. The Community Regatta is a great example of how the people of Dover are helping to make our town the Jewel in the Crown of the nation once more.
