Nearly two years have passed since we first mentioned that we would be rebuilding the Visitor Centre at RSPB South Stack. We knew it was going to be a time of opportunities and challenges – an understatement to say the least! Little did we know about the real challenges that our communities, visitors and the world was about to experience. But, after a long wait, we can proudly announce that our new visitor centre is now open!
It’s an exciting time of year at South Stack, as we’re greeted with the welcoming sight of guillemots and razorbills in their thousands on the sea cliffs. And we can count ourselves lucky and extremely thankful to be able to open our doors just in time to a brand-new Visitor Centre that we hope local people and visitors to Anglesey will enjoy.
The redevelopment of the Visitor Centre includes much-improved facilities, for visitors, volunteers and staff. We’ve also created a new café seating area that will open up to a decking area with spectacular views of the Irish Sea.
We’ve also taken this opportunity to make some environmental improvements. We’ve done small improvements to save money and reduce carbon, such as insulating roofs and walls and installing double glazing windows. We’ve also installed an air source heat pump, solar panels and a natural water treatment system that harnesses the power of nature to clean up the wastewater from our Visitor Centre.
Together with our own financial contribution, this project has been made possible with support through the Welsh Government Rural Communities Rural Development Programme 2014-20, funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and the Welsh Government.
We have also received generous funding from the Gaynor Cemlyn-Jones Trust for the installation of wooden sculptures, created by Anglesey sculptor Duncan Kitson, that celebrates the wildlife of South Stack. Pupils from Ysgol Cybi have also been creative, showcasing their artistic talents by creating artwork that depicts the beauty and wildlife of South Stack.
Since 1977, when RSPB Cymru first took the lease for South Stack from Anglesey Borough Council, we have managed this amazing coastal habitat for wildlife and visitors alike. Our work has been generously supported by many individuals, groups, local food producers, businesses and organisations and we would like to say thank you to all of them.
We also want to thank everyone who visits South Stack every year. It is your generosity and belief in our mission that enables us to continue our work of protecting wildlife and keeping RSPB South Stack a special place for nature and people.
We look forward to welcome you!
