Story

Rose Garden Cafe Restoration Latest!

From the Partnership meeting of 10th June 2024

‘Come and talk to the Partnership on 6th July at the Mount View Methodist Chapel between 10:30 and 15:00 as part of the Digging Deeper for All celebration open day. We will meet the structural engineer on July 1st and she will present her findings into the front wall with the final report issued on July 5th. Fundraising activities are ramping up, join David on his fundraising walks on 29th June and 7th July. The Charity Trustee Sub-Committee has been rescheduled for 16th July where we will deliver a progress update to the Committee.’

From the Partnership meeting of 24th May 2024

“We discussed the scope of works required for a comprehensive design scheme for the cafe, based on the recent public consultations and the forthcoming appointment of an architect to produce a full design scheme and estimate for the required works.

“We also discussed the future management of potential sources of funding for the cafe and agreed a timetable for the presentation of the final report into the ground investigations undertaken by the structural engineer, which will be available at the end of June.

“We also agreed the details of an updated report and representation from the partnership to the Council’s Charity Trusts Sub-Committee on 24th June 2024 about our next steps.

Fundraising activities for the restoration of the cafe are continuing by all parties involved.”

Just a reminder to everyone that the partnership is made up of representatives from the Save the Rose Garden Café group, Friends of Graves Park and Sheffield City Council.

Please continue to donate and spread the word about our Restoration Project! If we can raise £25,000 ourselves, this will show potential funding providers the local commitment to our cause.

Please be confident that your donations will be used for the restoration of the Rose Garden Café and the Friends will make sure that all money is very wisely spent.

As before, we will continue to keep you updated; in the meantime, now that the restoration option has been approved by the council and the partnership between the council, the Save the Rose Garden Café group and the Friends of Graves Park is actively working to restore the café builidng, any and all offers of help and donations will be gratefully received.

Please spread the word and let’s get people donating to our campaign!
