Step Short’s new visitor centre opened on the the 26th May, in Tram Road, Folkestone. The centre was opened by the Mayoress of Folkestone and the opening was attended by local councillors, Damian Collins M.P. local historians, and members of the public. Inside are displays of Step Short projects and there will be some WW1 artifacts on display soon. Three designs of souvenir mugs are on sale. Local maps to help explore Folkestone’s history are also available.
Step Short have taken a three year lease on the centre and hope it will be a focus for membership and publicity for the Step Short projects, as well as providing a meeting place and base for the project teams.
