Who We Are and What We Do?
Lyme Regis Development Trust (LRDT) is a community-based charity, working collaboratively with other local organisations to improve the economic, social, environmental and personal well-being for all in Lyme Regis and its surrounding area. We run a number of projects with these objectives in focus including The Seaside Store, local radio station, a community workshop and a community café. We have also organised the Lyme Regis Fossil Festival for over 10 years.
Most people know us best as being the charity behind The Hub on Church Street, a large multifunctional building that has a sports hall, cafe/meeting area and a commercial kitchen, all for affordable space hire or used by the projects we run. It is home to our local Youth Club, The Seaside Store and Lyme Bay Radio amongst its many other roles. We’re proud to be the venue for a range of regular vibrant clubs and societies.
In addition to this, we also own and manage St Michaels Business Centre which is home to a variety of different businesses including graphic designers, filmmakers and an environmental charity. We also look after a number of domestic properties that are available to privately rent.
