Covid update - roadmap to reopening


Monday 01 March, 2021


In light of the Government’s ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown, Norfolk Wildlife Trust will reopen its visitor centres on 12 April with the same Covid measures in place as last year. The Trust intends to provide takeaway refreshments and visitors will be able to use outside seating for refreshments. 

Boat trips at Ranworth and Hickling broads will also commence on 12 April with a maximum of two households per trip (including any members of a social support bubble). NWT is continuing to review when hides will reopen and will provide more information before the end of March.

On 17 May they plan to re-open indoor seating at the centres for those having refreshments, and to re-start engagement activities and events programme in line with social contact restrictions. Please keep an eye on the What’s On section on the website for up to date details on which events are taking place. Our season of Cley Calling Digital events continues this month with Roy Dennis.

Chief Executive of Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Pamela Abbott said: “We are now looking forward to welcoming our members and visitors back to the visitor centres and boat trips in a gradual way, and restarting our popular events programme in line with Government requirements. We have many fantastic nature reserves across the county and we hope that our visitors also consider these as great ways to enjoy wildlife.”
