Wish Tower Friends

The Wish Tower Friends are a group of volunteers, from Eastbourne and further afield, who want to encourage more people to visit the Wish Tower and educate them about its historical significance. They took over the running of the tower on a lease from Eastbourne Borough Council, with the aims of restoring public access, raising funds to repair the tower, educating visitors and to act as a leading community voice in the planning of the new restuarant site which is currently being built.

Some of the Wish Tower Friends

Since taking over the lease, the Wish Tower Friends have successfully conducted tours for over 2000 visitors to the tower, passing on historical knowledge to inspire the next generation. In addition to this, they have cleaned the tower, funded restoration projects, both for the building itself and the site, made it easily accessible to the public, and have staged many events.
