We can only open through the support of local volunteers that are willing and prepared to man the tower during opening season and we are keen to hear from anyone that would be willing to spare any time and join our friendly team in ensuring the Time Ball Tower remains the iconic centre piece of Deal's Maritime heritage.

    It doesn't matter what your background or knowledge, please do get in touch if you are are interested.
