Save Saltburn Valley Garden's Tea Rooms
Redcar and Cleveland Council have issued this statement on their website about the tearooms:
Saltburn Valley Garden Tea Room - Customer Notice
A feasibility study has been undertaken on behalf of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council to determine the future viability of Saltburn Valley Garden Tea Room. As a result of this study, it has been decided that the Tea Room will close at the end of the summer season to enable a full service review to be undertaken. Upon completion of the review, a business opportunity will be put out to open tender for the running of the Tea Room in conjunction with the Woodland centre, to open in the Spring.
The Tea rooms will close for the Winter Season from Friday 4th November 2011.
Thank you for your custom and support over the past 3 years.
If you would like to submit your views about the future of the Tea rooms, please do so in writing to; Carole Dodd, Acting Head of Adult Services, Seafield House, Kirkleatham Street, Redcar. TS10 1SP.
The feasibility study was conducted at the beginning of 2011 and there is no guarantee the tea rooms will re-open. We feel that closing the tea rooms is a contradiction to the R&CBC stated aims of promoting Saltburn as a visitor destination building on its present day and historic strengths. Please show your support by writing to Carole Dodd at the address above as well signing this petition. Your comments regarding the value of keeping the tea room open would be most welcome.
