Cowslip and Early Purple Orchid


Following updates from the Government on the coronavirus outbreak, the decision has been taken to cancel all WCCP and RMCP events starting from tomorrow (Wednesday 18th March 2020) for the foreseeable future. This means that all the events currently advertised in the Discover guided walks booklet for autumn/winter 19/20 will be cancelled. We have also postponed the production of our events programme for the summer and the Green Gang family activities programme for the Easter holidays. Making the decision to do this has been very disappointing but, given the latest Government advice we believe it is necessary. Thank you for all your support and we all send our thoughts and wishes and hope you, your family, colleagues and friends are all staying safe and doing what you can to keep well in these uncertain times.

River Dour


White Cliffs Countryside Partnership has won Heritage Lottery Funding to raise awareness about the River Dour in Dover. Ultimately WCCP will help the River be understood and better looked after for future generations. The project runs for three years from November 2018 and consists of four main areas to help this special chalk stream. During the construction of our new website please visit the (River Dour Facebook page) for more information
