Following the relaxation of lockdown restrictions Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has extended the opening of its take away food and drink offer at its Idle Valley Nature Reserve of North Road, Retford to 7 days a week.
The charity reopened its café as a takeaway-only service just before Christmas, covering Friday-Sunday, but with the ‘stay at home’ rule now relaxed and groups of up to 6 now allowed to meet outdoors and non-essential retail allowed to reopen, the Trust, is keen to welcome its old customers back and to extend a welcome to those that have discovered the reserve for the first time during lockdown.
Speaking about the extended operations Catering Manager James Jacques said: “It’s been a very challenging year for the team but we were delighted to reopen before Christmas and expanding to 7 day-a-week cover is a step on the road to resuming normal business. The team that look after the nature reserve have worked very hard to keep the site open throughout all the lockdowns and many people have sought solace here during a difficult year. We’re delighted we can now throw open the doors throughout the week to welcome them.”
