COMMUNITY organisations across Cheshire East have benefited from a new ‘spring’ feel to the Stables Restaurant at Tatton Park.

An improved layout for visitors with an ‘up to date’ Burista coffee machine, fresh colours, and stylish new furniture gave the opportunity to help some worthwhile causes.

The new look restaurant gave Tatton the opportunity to donate the surplus furniture through the Community Grants Team at Cheshire East Council.

The response was overwhelming and four worthwhile organisations across Cheshire East were the happy recipients: Age UK Cheshire East, Autism Networks in Crewe, the ‘Just So Festival’ for families and Ruby’s Fund in Congleton which helps children with additional needs and their families.

Tatton’s team of garden volunteers also received some new furniture for their own ‘garden bothy’ room in the Tatton Stableyard.

Alison Parr, director of ‘Ruby's Fund’, said: “We are thrilled to receive the tables and chairs. The furniture will be used within the sensory centre on a daily basis and the donation is hugely appreciated.”

Sarah Bird, director of the ‘Just So Festival’, added: “We are delighted that Tatton Park has been able to help support us. We’re dedicated to helping families have the most incredible artistic adventures and the more we can do to lower our infrastructure costs the more we can spend on amazing theatre, dance, circus and storytelling, so this gift is very welcome and much appreciated.”

Brendan Flanagan, visitor economy, culture and Tatton Park manager, said: “I am glad that a fresh look for the Stables restaurant enabled us to help some worthy causes across Cheshire East and fill an obvious need.”
