Councillors deeply disappointed that the Dunwood Park Café, Shaw has closed three months earlier than planned

Shaw and Crompton councillors have been informed of the early closure (31 March) of the café in Dunwood Park for operational/staff reasons.

Pure Innovations who operated the café have been forced to close it now due to staff departures since they announced they would be closing in July. They continue to pay rent until the end of their notice period in July.

“This does mean that Oldham Council has not yet had time to make alternative provision. However, interest has been great, and people can, if they want to find out more and fancy running the café please click on this link: ,” stated Shaw councillor Howard Sykes on behalf of all his colleagues.

“This is a great loss to the local community, and we will be doing all we can to find another user, like we did when the last operator pulled out. We are also working towards putting some measures in place so the toilets and facilities can be used for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations if an operator is not in place by then,” stated Shaw councillor Howard Sykes.
