The Gather Cafe and Shop

Due to the latest government guidelines announced on Monday 23rd March, it is with heavy hearts we have decided to temporarily close The Gather Cafe (including take out options), Community Room and Gift Shop.

Our key priority is to keep our staff, volunteers and customers safe during this difficult time.

We will continue to work with the Parish Council of Ennerdale and Kinniside & the Parish Council of Lamplugh to provide essential supplies within the community. For this the shop is open from 11am until 3pm until further notice.

Please make sure you practice safe social distancing when purchasing necessities from The Gather – strictly one in, one out, to safeguard the staff member on duty and other customers.

Stay safe, stay well and please stay at home 💕
