We did it!!

Thanks to nearly two hundred share purchasers we raised just over £50,000 in six weeks. The Café and the management committee are deeply grateful to all who helped by buying shares.

The Herb Garden Cafe will now become a Community Cafe.


We will be closed from Saturday July 1st for the redecoration and the handover.
We will be reopening on July 11th and we are sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime.

Volunteers Needed to help with redecoration

We are planning to redecorate the Café between June 30th and July 6th, reopening on July 11th. If anyone would like to give a hand please contact Dorienne: dorienne@headweb.co.uk

Curry and Quiz Night

On Friday July 14th we will be hosting the Cafe Curry and Quiz night.

Please book early for this as we expect a keen take up.

Phone 01597 823082 or pop in and reserve your place.


The Herb Garden Community Café Share Offer

Can I still buy shares?

Yes. Although we technically closed the share offer on May 12th this was a date that had to be set to calculate support. However, shares can be bought at any time so please see how to do this below.

What happens now?

We are currently opening nominations for the new management committee. All members will receive a form by email or in the post if no email is available.
The nomination forms need to be returned by Saturday July 1st.

This will be followed by a mail out to members of all candidates and their statements with a voting slip.
All postal or electronic votes need to be in by Tuesday July 18th.

The AGM, where votes will be counted and will include those who wish to vote in person on the day, will be held on Monday 31st July 6.00pm at the Cafe. (Please let us know if you will be attending the AGM as space may be limited and a larger venue sought.)
