The Broadstairs Society was established in 1964 with the aim of keeping the look and feel of the Broadstairs we all love whilst embracing positive changes...
'For a Better Broadstairs'
As well as doing everything we can to do that by working with Town, County and District councils, English Heritage and Government committees we also get involved with the local community to encourage support and campaign.

Over recent years we have also sponsored the following projects that support the look and feel of Broadstairs and recognise our heritage.
- A blue plaque, commissioned by Broadstairs Town Council and sponsored by the Society, placed on the Victoria Parade frontage of the former Carlton Hotel on the corner of Oscar Road and Victoria Parade. It commemorates the British Team that stayed there on their way to the 1924 Olympics held in Paris and who, in more recent times, became famous in the film 'Chariots of Fire'.
- Annual sponsorship of two planters situated at the main entrance to Broadstairs Station and maintained by the Town Team.
- Sponsorship of the new Tourist Information kiosk.
- Sponsorship of blue plaque at 9 The Vale commemorating Wilkie Collins who stayed there in 1859 and wrote the early chapters of his famous novel 'The Woman in White".
