Rye Harbour Discovery Centre update
Discovery Centre & Maria Jonsson @Kt Bruce

Maria Jonsson 

Acting Director of Business Support

Thank you to all our visitors and customers who have come to see the Discovery Centre. 

We are delighted with the positive response we have received and very excited to finally be able share our new, flagship building with everyone.

The team are looking forward to being able to welcome more of you, now that we have increased our capacity. We are taking a cautious approach in returning to normal and making sure that we accommodate everyone’s needs as far as possible. 

Sussex Wildlife Trust has decided to keep some of the Covid safety measures in place for now, for example our staff and volunteers will still be wearing face masks, we will keep our additional hygiene measures in place and customers are still able to sign in using the Track and Trace QR code if they wish. We appreciate that there is a broad range of views on the subject of the lifting of Covid regulations and we hope that the additional safety measures enable you to feel comfortable to visit if you would like to.

Garden furniture has been delivered, and, at the time of writing we are waiting for this to be assembled, so that food and drinks from the café can be enjoyed outside – much needed when we are blessed with lovely weather!

Our much-valued volunteers continue to be a fantastic asset to the Centre, in their roles in the shop and café. There will be more volunteer roles to follow. Do keep an eye on the website for opportunities to get involved. Thank you to all of those who give their time so generously.

The team are starting to plan events, art exhibitions, coffee mornings and other activities, which we will be able to tell you more about in the coming weeks and months.
