CAFÉ OPENING HOURS
Please note: Our café is now closed as we are constructing a new and much larger multi-use space. We have experienced significant delays through the planning process, unexpected costs related to restoring heritage parts of the building and most recently because of Covid 19 restrictions. However, construction of the cafe is in the late stages and work on the workshops underway. We are hopeful we will be able to open spring/summer 2021. We appreciate all your continue support.
WE’RE CROWDFUNDING TO BUILD A NEW COMMUNITY CAFE AND WORKSHOPS AND WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Our successful volunteer-run community cafe at Clitterhouse Farm is too small and no longer fit for purpose. We are crowdfunding to raise the money we need to demolish and rebuild a new and much larger multi-use space. The expanded area will provide a valuable indoor space and play a central role in our ability to connect with and work alongside our community, where we can host events, meetings and workshops throughout the year. We want our cafe to be a valuable social hub that will help us to build a broader base of community support for the wider project. Alongside the cafe expansion, we plan to refurbish a portion of the farm barn to create three large workshop spaces which will be made available for rent by local enterprise. The workshops will also act as educational facilities where we will run classes and workshops – giving arts and crafts professionals an affordable space, an opportunity to learn new skills, and develop their business and to benefit our local community. Throughout the construction we hope to give local people the chance to get involved in the construction as much as possible, providing opportunities for learning new skills and also to develop a sense of collective ownership and pride over the new spaces.
EVERY POUND COUNTS AND WE VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT!
The Clitterhouse Farm Project team has been working hard to build and open our small community cafe. As many of you will know we have opened the cafe on many occasions at our events over the last year. However, we’re happy to announce that we will be now be open more regularly. Come along and enjoy great tea and coffee and cake.
We rely on the help of a small team of amazing local volunteers to run the cafe. So our opening hours will vary and change. Please make sure to keep an eye on this page for regular updates on opening times.
