Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support Beach Hut
Following winning a share of the Ammonite Grant, via Lyme Regis Town Council, we are delighted to announce that we now have the use of a beach hut for five years.
We are opening up a beach hut for daily bookings to anyone in the local area dealing with cancer.
Given present circumstances, we do not know a start date, but if you are interested in booking, please do contact us so you are ready to book when we can open!

The Story Of This Beach Hut
The idea for the provision of this beach hut came from a local lady and her family. After going through her own cancer treatment, they attended the funeral at Lyme Church of a family friend who had passed away following a battle with breast cancer. Whilst leaving the church they saw an information board about the famous fossil hunter Mary Anning and discovered that she too had died from breast cancer, with limited treatment and support.
They heard that Fossil Films – producers of the film ‘Ammonite’ (2020), which contained scenes shot in Lyme Regis about the story of Mary Anning’s life – had given the town a sum of money to go towards local causes, and thought a beach hut seemed a perfect idea. The Council agreed, and here it is. For those of you who have been through, are going through or have been affected by a battle against cancer, you are welcome to relax by the sea and enjoy your own little bit of Lyme.
