Events in 2024

The Society organises a programme of events to enable people who love the town to meet each other and learn about the Society.

Some events are free to attend and open to everyone, for others online booking is available.


The Population Changes in Deal and Walmer are not what many of us think!

– Lies, misinformation and statistics.          Further observations from Ian Redding

We have some interesting discussions at the Society’s Executive, seeking to look at the bigger picture and to understand how new developments are changing our town and expanding it into surrounding areas, for good or bad.  


Betteshanger Country Park

The Friends of Betteshanger Country Park is a Group that has been set up to help protect this important and bio-diverse wildlife site from development. They would like as many people as possible to contact the Council and object to the developers proposals. Further details are in their leaflets and presentation below. Please take time to look through these important documents.
