LATEST NEWS:  The Gatehouse Museum is NOW CLOSED for Winter. 2020 threw every possible hurdle at organisations such as ours, and 2021 is continuing to make life interesting for everyone.  We are keen to swing open that big set of gates and our heavy wooden door and welcome those faces, new and old.  Lockdown is here, and currently we don’t know when restrictions will be lifted enough for us to open.  While we have been closed, our volunteers have tended to the garden, planting over 2000 bulbs to bring some colour to the area and to brighten up the day for all of those on their daily walk.


The Wheels of Time team have been busy getting the Wheels of Time scheme to come online.  Months of planning, meetings, Zoom calls, emails and copious amounts of online adjustments will culminate in Roamin’ Rex going digital.  The system is due to be tested very soon, and looking to go ‘live’ on the 2nd of April.  Keep your eyes peeled for the launch!

Regarding the re-opening of the museum, for now we have to wait.  The Government will update in the coming weeks as to what is going on.  Once we have a definite date for opening, we will spread the word far and wide!

We will keep updating our Facebook page during these cold winter months, so please check the links page for the Gatehouse and the Sheppey History pages on Facebook.

Stay Safe

Best wishes
