Update from Centre Manager Liz Grant
Work continues apace inside the new visitor centre. The decoration is complete. The café kitchen has been installed, as has a contemplation ledge around the viewing windows that overlook the reserve. The purpose of the information on the ledge is to help visitors understand the wildlife, landmarks and human history of the reserve.
I've been overseeing this work, planning the recruitment of new members of the staff team next year to support the running of the centre, as well as educational activities on the reserve.
Sussex Wildlife Trust anticipates that the Discovery Centre will be complete in the New Year, to enable opening in April 2021, but these timescales may be impacted by Covid-19 restrictions.
