Ramsgate Royal Harbour Sea Scouts group applied to Thanet District Council to take over the Ice House building in Ramsgate Harbour, in its entirety, under a Community Asset Transfer and was successful.
Our aim is that through the sympathetic and careful redevelopment of the Ice House, it will become a vibrant centre for supporting our Group and other youth and community organisations. Whilst we understand the significant undertaking that this project involves, we intend to respect the historic nature of the ice house and the surrounding buildings.
We are looking to hear from people who have historic photographs of the Ice House or stories about the Ice House. Perhaps people who have worked there or had parents, grandparents or great-grandparents who worked there. We are collecting information to help inform us during our planning phase and gather together the building’s history.
We are also interested in hearing from people who might be interested in using the Ice House for their community activities once renovated.
If you have any photographs or stories or would like to show interest in using the Ice House, then please contact the Group Scout Leader, Shirley Appleby gsl@6thramsgate Sea Scouts.org.uk
