The organising committee of the Dover Tattoo were unable to secure funds to stage another Dover Tattoo so with much regret have decided on winding up the company.
Liz Dimech, the secretary of the 2012 Dover Tattoo organising committee gave a cheque - remaining funds £ 480.00 to Derek Leach, the chairman of the Dover Society for the Dover Town Hall fund. A stock of flags were also given to be sold off for the Dover Town Hall fund.
A walk to mark the 70th Anniversary of VE Day took place on Dover seafront promenade. The walk started and finished at the Dunkirk Memorial and covered 1945 metres. A donation £100 was made to the Royal British legion.
