Newhaven Museum near Brighton, East Sussex
REGISTERED CHARITY NO. 1171675
Following recent Government Covid guidelines we have decided to cancel the Newhaven Historical Society speaker events at the Hillcrest Centre until later in 2021. A further decision on resuming these events will be taken closer to the time, when, hopefully, we will be allowed to plan their resumption.
Unfortunately the museum will have to remain closed until the current lockdown restrictions are eased. We're sure you will all be disappointed but feel there is no other course of action open to us in the present climate. Currently we using this enforced closure to refurbish the museum entrance area.
Many thanks for your support in these difficult times.
