Beer on East Devon's World Heritage Coast

Welcome back to the

Fine Foundation Centre, Beer


You will find that some of our displays

have been amended to make them

more Covid-19 secure.


We apologise that our popular

summer visitors are absent from the fish tanks

We hope that they will be back next year.


The centre is small, so please limit visitors to

2 people or one family.


If you don’t feel safe in the centre,

please stay outside


You will find some more displays

underneath the building and there is an

I-Spy based in the immediate vicinity

which you can find on our website.

Also don't forget Ruth’s Blow-Ins project

this is a similar project to the Virus Project - see above

We would like a short story from any Blow-ins

"what prompted you to move to Beer?"

Details in also in the BAG newsletter

        Recording the information on the gravestones in the closed churchyard.  
        Setting up a display of Axe Vale pottery

       Supporting the creation of a series of links between the SW Coast Path and the East Devon Way

Beer Village Heritage would like to create an historic document

It will be about YOUR experiences during the Covid-19 Times

Please e-mail to Norah preferably in a word document, but not crucial

anything you would like to be included in the final folder - writings or photos

This will be of great interest to others in the future

Thank-you and stay well all of you
