As a result of considerable concern over recent events in and around Dover a number of people met, on 18 March 1988 to discuss the possibility of forming a civic soclety.
The futures of Connaught park, Brook House, Pencester
Gardens and River Recreation Ground , combined wlth anxieties produced by
the building of the Channel Tunnel and a desire to be involved in the
development, of tourism, were among the issues which brought us together.
Infornation provided by the clvic Trust proved very useful.
