All Systems Go for Princes Park Garden Centre

With some great new signage, it’s all system are go! Down at the Princes Park Garden Centre based at Prince’s Park, Irlam, now ready and able to come out of the COVID-19 lock-down.

The popular charity shop at the Garden Centre will be re-opening from this Monday 15th June, from 10am until 3pm and going forward will be open seven days a week between the same hours. With Lynda, Pauline and Gladys and volunteers, waiting with a ‘smile’ for your business and support.
Pauline said, “It will be good to see all our regulars again down at the Garden Centre Charity Shop, all monies we raise go back into supporting the Princes Park Garden Centre and the work it does.”

As is now the ‘norm’ social distancing, restricted numbers and a one-way system around the shop will all be in operation to keep both volunteers and visitors safe. So please take notice of the guidance in place.
The Princes Park Garden Centre Charity Shop are always looking for donations and support to carry on with their good work.

On Sunday 28th June there will be a Farmers Market at the Centre open from 11am until 4pm with a whole host of stalls making use of the outside space including the purpose built ‘barn’ offering a range of fresh produce, compost, plants, crafts and other items.

To coincide with the Farmers Market the onsite café now re-branded ‘Roosters Coffee Cabin’ will be open for takeaway business with outside seating available. The café has been taken over by Cadishead Chef Adam Reissing who has more than 17-years of experience in the catering business.
Adam said, “We will initially be open for takeaway hot and cold food such as bacon, sausage or egg sandwiches, toast, teas and coffee. With an outside seating area in place within the Garden Centre. When permissible and safe to do so the Café will re-open fully offering some fantastic and tasty food to eat-in or takeaway.”

After the Farmers Market, Roosters Coffee Cabin, will be open from 7am until 5pm seven days a week with an earlier closure on Sunday at 4pm.
Adam has been busy at the café during lock-down providing more than 600 meals a week for local vulnerable, elderly and shielding individuals. Delivered by an army of volunteers and staff from the Garden Centre. Funding for the meals has been sourced by the Garden Centre from a number of different charity funds and will continue for as long as it is needed.

Chairman Alec McFadden added, “It’s all systems go for everyone down at the Princes Park Garden Centre. Obviously, safety measures such as social distancing, hand washing and number limits are all essential at the moment. Be we are sure that with those in place we will be open for business and are looking forward to the Farmers Market on the 28th June.”
Alec added, “The new Garden Centre signage on the main road and at the entrance look fantastic. A big thank you to Stacey Antcliff for designing and making the signs.”

The Garden Centre that supports adults with learning difficulties will also be starting their popular walking football sessions, initially with training from the 17th June, on the former tennis courts area at the park until the facilities at the nearby Irlam and Cadishead Leisure Centre are able to open and operate fully.
