Kate Harrison started this petition to Walpole Bay Cliff Lift - Kent and

PLEASE HELP TO PUT THE LIFT BACK IN CLIFTONVILLE....

The Walpole Bay Cliff Lift is situated in Cliftonville on the North Kent coast,  between Palm Bay and Margate. The lift has been out of service for over 15 years and we are hoping  with this petition we can gather local and wider support to get the beautiful lift recognised as a vital asset that people would love to see reinstated as a working lift and which shows perfect eligibility for the Margate Town Deal Funding stream.

The beautiful Art Deco lift was buily in 1934 funded by the Ministry of Health, to encourage residents and visitors to use both the upper prom and sea level to exercise and bathe in the sea and tidal pool, all to improve health and well being  - exactly why we believe it to be so important that it is up and running again.  The Lift is one of only 4 beautiful iconic structures of its kind remaining nationally, which means it is a really important to the heritage landmark that should be treasured and looked after.

It is IMPOSSIBLE for some elderly people and those with limited mobility or access to any motorised transport to enjoy the lower sea level, beach and the tidal pool, all of which are resources that encourage improved well being and are a wonderful source of social interaction and help create all round positivity. The footpaths and ramps down to the lower promenade are totally unsuitable for wheelchairs or those unstable on their feet and mobility issues which is why saving the lift is crucial.. 

If you feel that having the Walpole Bay Lift working again would benefit the area and those living and visiting here, we are asking that you could please sign and share this petition. We want to prove to the those that have the power to save the lift, that it is worth saving so PLEASE sign and share anywhere you can - Thank you ..
