Toilets to Remain Open.

An update on the park situation: So far all the play areas will remain open during lockdown – there has been no instruction to say they must close. The park is open for business as usual. (It might be worth taking hand sanitiser with you if you’re using play or fitness equipment?)

The cafe will close Wednesday afternoon for the duration of the lockdown. If business is slack it may close earlier than normal – and if it does, they will be closing the toilets earlier than normal.
So! As the cafe staff have been closing the toilets, it means this is now being taken over by StreetScene Dept of the council. They will be closing them around 3pm, as the cafe have been doing. If anything changes, we’ll let you know.
Enjoy the park for your daily exercise, fresh air and mental health wellbeing, that’s what it’s there for.

Eat out to Help out!

Fantastic News! The park cafe is participating in the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme.
You get a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner), every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between 3 and 31 August. You can eat as many times as you like!
Can’t afford not to! Come on down (and if you’ve done some exercise in the park you’ll be ready for something to eat).

Cafe may open soon – Fingers Crossed.

Joy & Drew have been working hard behind the scenes in the cafe, coming to terms with the new way of working Post Lockdown.

They have spent £thousands getting the cafe ready to accept customers but things will change dramatically. There will be social distancing of course; one way queuing system; perspex barriers between tables; hand sanitisers and generally all the things you’ve been seeing in supermarkets and shops.
They have missed all their customers and friends and are looking forward to opening as soon as the Government gives the go ahead. The word at the moment is 4th July but that could change, as things do on a daily basis.
This is a great positive for the park and a facility we’ve all missed. Please let’s keep it positive – no negative comments or moans like “They’ll put the prices up to pay for it”, or complaints about what will be on the menu. We all need positivity at this time, let’s give them the boost they need.
They are also still working on the plans for the new cafe, though that will be delayed by the current situation.
We hope you will support them by giving them the business they really do need at this time.
