Cafe for Priory Country Park

Café for Priory Country Park

 

Bedford Borough Council is inviting tenders to develop and run a café in the visitors centre at Priory Country Park.

 

The multiple award-winning country park, which was awarded Green Flag status for the fourteenth year running last summer, already provides wonderful facilities for families, dog walkers, water sports, fishing and nature fans. However, Bedford Borough Council hopes to go even further and provide refreshments for those who wish to enjoy the park. Due to a change in circumstances since the tender was originally awarded, the Council is inviting businesses to tender again for the opportunity.

 

Cafes at Russell Park, Bedford Park, Harrold Odell Country Park and Mowsbury Park have all proved to be extremely popular and, as will be the case at Priory Country Park, they have all been opened in previously under-used park buildings. 

 

Priory Country Park encompasses a 180 space car park, adventure play area, picnic sites, kick about area, an extensive walking network and is home to a vast array of local wildlife. The park is one of Bedford Borough’s top visitor destinations, attracting over 320,000 visits each year.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said “Following the success of the cafes in several of the Borough’s parks, we believe a new facility in Priory Country Park would become a real community hub and make visiting even more enjoyable. Priory is already a hugely popular park for visitors of all ages, and a new cafe will only enhance its popularity.”

 

To find out more about this exciting business opportunity and obtain a tender information pack, please call us on: 01234 276160 or e-mail: commercial.hub@bedford.gov.uk. The deadline for tender submissions is: 12 noon on Friday 27th May 2016.
