Fort Amherst calling for volunteers – Saturday 7th March
March 7, 2020 @ 9:15 am - 4:00 pm
Volunteers are needed on Saturday 7th March from 9.15 am to 4 pm to help clear vegetation in the Barrier Ditch which was built in the Seven years War (1754 to 1763); a critical part of Fort Amherst’s defences.
Gloves, tools and water will be provided. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing – sturdy shoes and take a packed lunch.
The Fort Amherst restoration works involves the removal of Riverside One building to open-up the lower end of the Barrier Ditch and create a new public realm area as well as establish a new pedestrian entrance to the Fort, via Barrier Road, creating a better connection to Chatham town centre.
