The award winning Ramsgate Town Council tourism initiative, Active Ramsgate, has just launched Active8 Week.
This dedicated week in September is to celebrate all things active in Ramsgate – with eight activities that can be enjoyed within Ramsgate all year round being offered up for people to try out for FREE! Active Ramsgate is designed to support economic development in the town by promoting the Ramsgate area through its inspiring range of outdoor activities. The Active8 Week aims to showcase some of these, and offer visitors and residents the chance to win a ticket to try them out.
Those keen to try out these activities should apply via email to Active Ramsgate firstname.lastname@example.org giving their name, contact details and the activity they would like to take part in, by the 5pm deadline on September 8. Each name will then be entered into a free prize draw to win a place on an activity and successful participants will be contacted with arrangements to take part in Active8 week.
