About this Website
The WalmerWeb community website first went "on-line" in May 2004. Since then, thanks to the efforts of webmaster Harold Wyld and the terrific support of a number of local residents and organisations - not least Walmer Parish Council - the content has developed enormously.
Mission. The website is provided as an entirely voluntary service to local residents and anyone interested in the coastal parish of Walmer in the UK county of Kent.
Liability. Care has been taken to ensure that the information on WalmerWeb is both accurate and up-to-date. However, we do not accept any liability to any party for loss, damage or inconvenience incurred by reliance placed on the said information.
Advertising and Free Listings. WalmerWeb does NOT accept paid advertising. Listings of local businesses and service providers - mostly based in the parish - are free of charge. Inclusion should not be regarded as endorsement or recommendation.
Errors. If users spot any omissions or errors, information to help put matters right will be greatly appreciated. To contact the Webmaster, please CLICK HERE.
