A new lease of life has been given to beach hut No.136 as part of the We All Do Things project. The hut, on West Beach, Herne Bay, is being lent to community group People United by Canterbury City Council’s Foreshore Services.
No. 136 is hoped to be used as a quiet and welcoming place for people to read, think and reflect on ways to help the community. It will be made available to individuals and community and social groups as a space to develop their work in making positive changes to the town and surrounding area.
Young people from the newly formed Community Action Group, which is part of the Bay Project, have already helped to revamp the hut and given it a new lick of paint. Tom Hawkins, coastal development officer from Foreshore Services said:
“We’re pleased to be able to support this community opportunity. Our beaches are a unique environment and a great local asset. This project shares strong similarities to other environmental and educational work our service delivers and supports our aim of providing the local community with a better understanding of these marine and coastal areas.”
