Council to open new look café at Pugneys

31/07/2017, PR8620


Wakefield Council is opening a new look café at Pugneys later this year to replace the existing offer.

The current café owner’s lease has expired and the Council is now negotiating a date for him to leave. Until then it will be business as usual for the café.

A refurbishment programme, which is expected to take around two weeks will start once the café has been vacated and mobile catering offering sandwiches, snacks and hot and cold drinks will be put in place whilst the work takes place. Once complete the new café will have a different look and feel as well as giving customers a new menu and more choice.

Cllr Les Shaw, Cabinet Member for Corporate Services at Wakefield Council, said: “We’re excited to be opening a new café with a new menu which will offer more choice to customers and will also provide improved opening hours.

“It will be a great addition to Pugneys, one of our most popular parks which has great walks and cycle routes, a nature area and fantastic play area for children and their families to enjoy."
