17th July 2019. On the evening of Wednesday 17th July, seventy watchkeepers and their partners gathered to enthusiastically celebrate the 15th anniversary of the opening of NCI Newhaven.
The glittering party was also attended by NCI National Chairman, Lesley Suddes, who presented 15, 10 and 5 year service awards to some of the volunteer watchkeepers. The surprise gift of a specially printed book of fifteen years-worth of Newhaven NCI press cuttings was also presented to past Station Managers and to the first two watchkeepers to sign the station logbook on the very first day of operations in 2004. A very happy and memorable time was had by all!
