We have just been awarded the contract to lease the Reculver Visitor Centre, after a competitive tender process operated by Canterbury City Council.
The award, subject to contract, will see the centre developed into a high end ethical coffee shop selling its unique freshly ground and roasted blend of coffee, a selection of fine teas, premium hot chocolates as well as handmade cakes and Crepes. Hathats will be working with Amelix Education Resources to develop a broad, interactive, education offer for local schools.
Louis Hurst, HatHats Coffee’s founding director, said ‘We are delighted to have been offered the opportunity to operate the visitor centre and have some exciting plans for the space’
The centre, situated next to the iconic Reculver Towers, has over 200,000 visitors per year as well as thousands of school pupils embarking on field trips. The company intends to expand the educational offer at the centre and has engaged a number of educational professionals to closely link resources to the new national curriculum.
Russell Sauntry, CEO of Amelix Education Resources said ‘Reculver has one of the best examples of, easy to study, coastal defences in the country. A superb example of medieval church, a ruined Roman fort and a beautiful country park. Our team are busy writing materials that schools will find invaluable for fieldwork activities.’
HatHats Coffee was setup in 2015 by husband and wife team Louis & Lisa Hurst with a driving factor to make a good cup of coffee, with every element of the coffee being good and work directly with the coffee growing communities around the world. The company has also been nominated for 2 prestigious KEiBAs (Kent Excellence in Business Awards) for startup of the year and Apprenticehsip of The Year.
