Friends of Spurn was created in 2003 to raise funds to purchase a new Observatory building, we have turned that dream into a reality and we opened our new Observatory building in March 2016. The new building is very impressive, with modern facilities this is the ideal base for a birder visiting the Spurn area. However this building didn’t come cheap and we had to take on a mortgage in order to purchase the building. In order to continue to pay the mortgage we need the continuing support of our members and to recruit new members.
As our membership base has grown particularly in recent years this has enabled us to increase the amount of work we do as an Observatory, creating habitat for birds on our land in the Obs Garden, Church Field and Corner Field, improving the annual Spurn Wildlife report and building a log cabin in the Obs garden to accommodate volunteers for years to come.
By becoming a Friend of Spurn you’re helping to support all the work we do as an Observatory. In return you will receive;
We hope to develop these benefits as our membership continues to grow, watch this space for future exciting developments.
