Residents offered the chance to learn more about East Devon’s World Heritage Site

EAST Devon residents will have the chance to find out more about the World Heritage Site thanks to a new roadshow.

The Jurassic Coast Team, which is responsible for managing the site, will be visiting towns along the coast to give presentations and host family activities.

And they will rolling into Seaton and Beer in March.

The team will be joined by a range of organisations who also work to look after the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Site, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

The presentations will update people about what has been happening on the site since its designation by UNESCO in 2001, plans for the future and how to get involved.

The team will be inviting local residents to share their ideas about how this special anniversary year can best be celebrated.

The dates and venues of the roadshows are as follows:

March 3: Mariners Hall, Beer, 4-7pm.

March 16: Town Hall, Seaton, 4-7pm.

The events will start with a presentation from 4-5pm followed by an hour of drop-in time with some family activities based around fossils. The presentation will then be repeated from 6-7pm with some time afterwards for questions.

Sam Rose, Jurassic Coast World Heritage Team Leader, said: “It has been a few years since we have done a full programme of public meetings and we are really looking forward to getting out there, hearing what people have to say and helping them to get more involved with their World Heritage Site.”
