The third tender, covering the design of new, or adaptation of existing, wildlife watching structures on the reserve is open until noon on Thursday 28 March 2019.

Speaking about the project, Elaine More, Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s Druridge Bay Development Manager said: “The East Chevington reserve has the potential to be an amazing site for people and wildlife, so I would encourage anybody or any organisation wishing to be involved in such an exciting venture to submit their tenders before the closing date.”
