The Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre will reopen its doors to visitors on Saturday.

New safety measures will be in place across the centre to keep volunteers, staff and visitors as safe as possible.

Entry to the centre is free and no booking is required.

A spokesman for the centre said: “We are reducing our visitor numbers, so a queuing system will be in place from the rear entrance of the building.

“We are following the Government guidelines with track and trace details too. Sanitising stations are in place at the entrances and inside the centre and don’t forget your masks.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to run any of our public events at this time, but private fossil hunting walks are available to book.”
