        Newgate Gap Shelter to be transferred to arts charity, Stretch

        “We were pleased to see four organisations coming forward with Community Asset Transfer bids to secure the future of the Newgate Gap Shelter in Margate.

        “The successful applicant, the arts charity Stretch, has a 15 year track record of delivering art projects and championing the role of unheard voices and ‘outsider’ art.

        “We are committed to empowering communities to create their own success stories through the community asset transfer process and look forward to this project being one of them. The bid included working closely with local community organisations and charities that support some of our most vulnerable residents.” 

        Tim Howes, Director of Corporate Governance and Monitoring Officer
