Just to remind you of the amazing transformation of Carriage 4. We still have three more carriages to do. It's amazing to see the progress and all the work come together. Thanks again to all of those who helped us in this refurbishment, to all the members at Hythe Shed for their skills and expertise and to the Beaulieu Beaufort Trust who provided us with a grant of £10 000 towards restoration #RestoringHythePier

After many many hours of hard work and dedication, our newly restored Carriage 4 is out of the shed and getting prepped for roof fibreglassing. We hope this carriage will be ready for public use when services restart. Watch this space.

In an effort to prevent further deterioration of the south side building on Hythe’s Victorian Pier built in 1894, contractors started work on the structure this week to give it temporary protection until funding is raised for permanent restoration. The project will take place over the next three weeks and is a step in the right direction to #RestoringHythePier (picture courtesy of Gary Woletz)

Easy income from ‘Easyfundraising’

Easyfundraising is a way of turning your online shopping into a free donation for HPHA. Just start your online shopping at easyfundraising, then shop as normal. Retailers will then make a small donation to say ‘thankyou’. There’s over 4,549 retailers to choose from including big names such as Boots, M&S, John Lewis, Tesco and Amazon. Other companies such as Hotels.com and Tui are also on the list so when you come to book that longed for holiday, think about how much money you could indirectly raise for HPHA.

So far HPHA have raised an amazing £659.61 from the support of just 51 subscribers but we are convinced that this figure could be even greater. So what are you waiting for ?

Hythe Pier Heritage Association – Preserving and restoring the Pier for community benefit

Hythe Pier Heritage Association seeking to expand membership.

HPHA is launching a new membership supporter scheme to increase its numbers and expand engagement with the local community. By improving the community’s knowledge of its work, it hopes to increase the available “volunteer pool” for the numerous activities in which HPHA is involved. Applications to this scheme from further afield would also be most welcome.

An annual donation of £10 per year will provide access to:
• A new private HPHA page to discuss project progress and plans with other members
• Early press releases and news notifications
• A few “lectures” throughout the year about the work of HPHA and pier related subjects
• A membership card each year

The new scheme was launched on 1st February 2021 and a facility for secure online payment is available via the HPHA website http://hythepier.co.uk/

HPHA was established early in 2017 to preserve and protect Hythe Pier, its Train and associated structures from further deterioration and develop it to be a real community feature. Registered as a community benefits society, HPHA has been very successful in staging fundraising events in the community. Although the Covid 19 epidemic prevented these throughout 2020 and into 2021, HPHA is still working hard to secure the necessary funding to fulfil its aims.

HPHA has completed various projects including a make-over of the Hythe Pier entrance complete with new period signage, in conjunction with the Hythe Shed (at the Pier) the restoration of the first of the train carriages and is about to commission work to protect the pier head buildings.

Donations can be made via the HPHA website hythepierha.org.uk

Over the centuries much has changed, yet the links between the big city and the backwater village are still very much alive. Ferry passengers make the fifteen minutes crossing from Hythe’s Victorian pier stretching 2,100 feet from the shore.

138 pages A4,, packed with fascinating history about Hythe Pier right up to the present day written by local historian and HPHA committee member Alan Titheridge.

We do sell these on eBay but if you can manage local collection you'll save yourself £4.60 and also means we won't have to hand over 10% to eBay.

We have two collection points locations in central Hythe and, at a pinch could probably even arrange free local delivery to Hythe and Dibden Purlieu.

If you are thinking of changing energy supplier why not go through Easyfundraising & uSwitch . I switched yesterday & £15 was credited to HPHA this morning. ☺️
http://t.e.easyfundraising.org.uk/r/?id=h37b0658b,27825a05,256e573b&utm_source=adobecampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=adventcalendar-2020&utm_content=promoter_wup&origin=PS118 Just a gentle reminder to the 50 members who have signed up to easyfundraising. . Don't forget to go through the app when buying online , there is a long list of retailers donating various percentages of purchases to our cause. To date £598.91 has been donated. If you forget to go through the app a reminder can be downloaded to alert you if a retailer is signed up, but it appears at the moment that this is only available for laptops or pc. Hopefully one will be developed for phones & tablets . Happy shopping !
Can anyone tell me if there is a book that I can buy as a gift for someone about the Hythe pier and railway?
Is there an update on what is happening with the pier? The last I heard Blue Funnel had changed their position about gifting it. I understand there was an AGM in July but I didn’t receive any minutes and they aren’t on this page. Would be good to have an update. Thanks.
Hi I am looking for some info please. My wife worked in Hythe for British Maritime Technology, does any one remember the address and is the building still there? as we have just visited and could not find the place. This was 33 years ago when I was based at Marchwood. Any info would be gratefully received.
Come on everyone let's get the crowdfunder shared as much as possible its slowed down and we are almost halfway let's keep it going
Let's get the post underneath shared to websites mailing lists all over Facebook we are almost half way there let's keep the ferry and pier going xx
Sorry to hear the event is cancelled folks, I hope it's possible to re-organize for a day with better weather soon. Best Wishes Steve at www.steamplates.co.uk
Hi! Have I missed the opportunity to buy Community shares?
Hello All, can I ask you to post any of your Mistletoe Fayre or Christmassy Hythe and Dibden pictures on Helen Hythe if you are happy for me to use them for next year's publicity. I always need photos and I never have time to take any! Many Thanks x
Lots of activities on Hythe Pier this Saturday!
Tomorrow I'll announce the details of the next quiz that Jan and I are presenting in aid of the Hythe Pier Heritage Association
