On March 6th 2019 Derby Lodge Tearooms at Shipley Park will be forced to close its doors forever unless we convince Derbyshire County Council and Shipley Park to keep it open, with new leasers in place to run it instead of those who currently hold the lease.

To have it still running as an opportunity for people with learning difficulties to have work experience is also very important, as well as a popular watering hole for regular local dog walkers, hikers and visitors alike.

For some of our older visitors The Lodge is a lifeline. They tend to come in every morning for their usual drink and snack and to meet other regulars and the great staff. Often that is the only time they get to see anyone in their day.

The Lodge Tearooms is also the only, truly, dog friendly cafe in the park with plenty of outside seating and lots of water bowls to a lovely back room, cosy with a real fire, just for dogs and their owners to enjoy. Plus, there are always plenty of doggie treats. Non doggie owners may also join them, of course!

All of that will be lost if The Lodge has to close!

Please sign to keep Derby Lodge Tearooms open!
