There is still time for businesses to register their interest in running a new café at the Outwoods in Loughborough.

Charnwood Borough Council is converting the Outwoods ranger’s cottage into a visitor centre and is putting a final call out to businesses which may wish to operate the café part of the development.

It is hoped the visitor centre will be completed by the end of this summer and alongside the café will provide toilets and space for exhibition displays.

The Council will be sending further information to interested businesses about the timeline and tendering process in April.

Businesses interested in this opportunity are being encouraged to email Outwoodsnewcafeoperator@charnwood.gov.uk to register their interest.

People can keep up to date with the project by checking out the Council’s social media channels or by visiting www.charnwood.gov.uk/visitorcentre

The Outwoods is 110 acres of ancient woodland to the south of Loughborough and is one of the oldest surviving woodland sites in Charnwood. It is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by Natural England, which means it is protected by law to conserve its wildlife and geology.
