Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with numbers being limited because of shared facilities. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we will be requesting that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT' from May 18th. However, The 'Rule of 6' applies and face coverings are still mandatory in the hides. Sanitiser and spray will be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.
The Trustees.
