The Ennerdale Centre, Gather Cafe
The Ennerdale Centre is now open, please visit the Gather Cafe and Shop on your way to and from the valley for refreshments, food and information.
The Ennerdale Centre is the vision of the Ennerdale Hub Ltd to restore a range of community facilities such as shop, post office and information centre to the heart of the community.
The project is a partnership between The Community Hub Ltd who manage the Fox and Hounds Pub, and Ennerdale and Kinniside Parish Council.
The Wild Ennerdale Partners have been supporting the idea from its origin, helping with developing the vision, early ideas and plans, planning and presentation, designing and funding internal display panels, providing tree and hedge plants and shelters. The site was a former Forestry Commission office which the Forestry Commission reserved for the community 10 years ago and offered to lease to the Community Hub in 2015 for £1/year which the Community Hub agreed to.
