Handing over the keys

The Sussex Wildlife Trust were delighted to take ownership of the completed Rye Harbour Discovery Centre from Baxall Construction last Friday 19 March. 

COVID-19 restrictions permitting, the Centre will open its doors in late May. For now, work continues on the internal set up, landscaping and finishing touches. 

Many thanks to the Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and all the generous supporters and donors who have made this project happen.

    Hi, My sister lives in Hastings and we would like to stay with her to visit your new Discovery Centre. Unfortunately she is moving house around 25 June so it will have to be well before then ! I cannot find a date on your website apart from “end May”. Do you have anything more definite yet please ? Many thanks.

    Hi Susan We hope to open the doors of the Rye Harbour Discovery Centre next week sometime (week beginning 24th May 2021). However, it's important that you're aware that, due to Covid-19 regulations, only a limited number of visitors will be allowed access. To avoid queueing and to assist staff, Sussex Wildlife Trust is encouraging everyone, wherever possible, to delay their visit until June 21st, when hopefully most restrictions will ease. Best wishes Emma
