Welcome to the Gather Cafe and Shop
The Gather is a new build community owned and managed Information centre, shop and cafe located in the village of Ennerdale Bridge just to the west of Wild Ennerdale. The building also provides a community space for meetings events and activities and a local gym.
The Gather Shop stocks visitor guides, walking and camping essentials for those tackling the Coast to Coast walk or just visiting for the day.
The Gather Cafe provides delicious locally sourced and prepared food, light bites, wonderful coffee and other refreshments. A great meeting place before you visit Ennerdale or somewhere to finish the day off after a long walk, ride or just for a chat.
For more information visit The Gather Cafe and Shop.
Wild Ennerdale Support
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.
How you can help
The Gather is running profitably and sustainably but the Community Hub behind the project needs finance to help balance the books left in debt by its previous ownership of the Fox and Hounds. If you would like to help by donating to ensure the continued operation of the Gather, please visit JustGiving.
