Dreamland Heritage Trust search for new chairperson and call for volunteers

Dreamland's history is preserved by the Trust

The Dreamland Heritage Trust (DHT) is looking for a new chairperson to join the board of trustees and will also beholding a recruitment day for volunteers.

The registered charity is a voluntary body that was created in 2009 following a six-year community campaign to save Margate’s Dreamland Amusement Park from re-development.

It now continues to promote the heritage, education, history and brand of Dreamland.

The new chair will provide leadership and direction to the board of trustees. The DHT is looking for a committed, passionate individual with the drive to achieve ambitious growth for the charity. The chair of the DHT does not receive financial remuneration, although expenses for travel may be claimed.

A spokesperson said: “Our team of volunteers play a vital role in helping to promote the history and heritage of Dreamland and we are looking for new members who are passionate about cultural heritage to join our friendly team.

“There are a variety of opportunities that can fit everyone’s availability, interest and skill set. From meeting and greeting visitors in our exhibition, to organising and displaying the archives, developing free talks and tours for the general public and schools, helping to organise volunteer rotas and social activities and supporting our fund raising.”

  1. Dreamland unfortunately is now a mirage. There is no vintage theme park despite tens of millions of pounds of grants charitable donations and public money having poured into this venture, which has only served to enrich those associated with hedge funds .
    Why would anyone in good conscience wish to be involved when all that can be done is to record the demise of this theme park as a result of its mismanagement by TDC and manoeuvrings of individuals associated with hedge funds involved in the site .
    It must be so disappointing for all with a genuine interest in local social history and theme parks .
