Can't wait to see the caves open again. Went here when I was little, I grew up in Margate. So nice to see the town being regenerated ????

I'd like to express my appreciation for all of the effort that you've made to reopen Margate Caves. It will definitely help breathe life back into our beautiful town. Well done and thank you so much!
