Launch of the NEW Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust Visitor Centre
ESSEX and Herts Air Ambulance Trust (EHAAT) has hosted a special event to celebrate the official launch of its NEW Visitor Centre.
The centre, at the air ambulance’s air base on Earls Colne airfield, is home to the life-saving aircraft.
On Friday VIP guests joined EHAAT representatives to unveil the new centre, which is one of the first of its kind in the UK.
The facility, which includes a number of interactive initiatives, is designed to empower visitors to find, explore and learn about the work of the Trust and is the culmination of a five-year long journey.
Jean Robinson, who led the relocation project, said: “We are very excited to have officially opened the Visitor Centre alongside the newly relocated Essex Air Ambulance airbase at Earls Colne. It has been an incredible five year journey from the outset.

“The Visitor Centre will enable all of our supporters of any age to see the work of the helicopter from a new perspective. We do hope that the educational visits and tours will encourage people to help support the Charity in lots of new ways.
“I am extremely grateful to everyone, but especially ICAP who has played such a crucial role in allowing us to build this once in a lifetime project.”
