Survey for the Dover District Climate Forum

 If you can spare 5-10 minutes to complete this survey, the newly formed Independent Climate Action Forum for Dover (an affiliation of local environmental groups concerned about the climate crisis) would like to hear from you.


They are gathering information to be able to present our local councils a summary of our concerns and priorities.

The Survey runs to the 27th September.

The Deal Hop Farm has its 2nd harvest of the 2021 season on Wednesday 15th September - ( The first one last week produced a cracking 120kgs harvested from 70 sites in and around the town).
