Rosie's Tea Room
With no other cafe, tea room or coffee shop in Hayfield, the proposal for a new establishment serving eat-in food and beverages looked to provide the large and popular village with a new service for residents and visitors, especially in the mornings when no pubs or restaurants are open.
Meals are made on the premises and food and drink is being sourced locally, working with local producers and suppliers. The tea room will also be used for selling local products, including arts and crafts. In addition, the cafe will sell specialist coffees and blend its own filter coffee, and this is to be promoted via a new website.
Funding has helped to pay for the refurbishment of the former hairdressing salon, including counter and display space, a new and accessible WC, plus various other fixtures and fittings.
The proposals received widespread community support. It was envisaged that two or three part time positions would be created and the new staff will undergo formal training in food preparation, hygiene. The new business will act as a stimulus for local suppliers and enhance the appeal of the village and the various services that it offered.
Total project cost £25,786.
Leader grant £12,893.
