The Grove Blackboys

We are closed

Dear friends of The Grove,

It is with a mixture of sadness and hope that we announce that we have made the difficult decision to permanently close The Grove Café.  The C-19 situation has exacerbated our situation and the sustainability of the hospitality sector in general. The unknown future timescale of lock-down, social isolation, people’s confidence to go out and financial instability on a wider scale, makes future planning almost impossible. All we’ve been able to do is look at what we know, make educated guesses at what we think may happen and pray for wisdom.

When we opened 8 years ago our vision was to provide a community hub and to create an environment where all feel welcome and safe.  It has been a real pleasure to welcome so many different people into the Grove, both staff, customers and suppliers.  We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported The Grove over the years and we take away many precious relationships and memories.

We do hope and pray that you all remain safe and well and we look forward to seeing you as we all go about our business in the community.

Take care and God bless.

A Final Farewell….. The last few weeks have been a very busy and emotional time as we have dismantled The Grove and returned the keys to the landlord. We have been hugely encouraged and blessed by people’s support through this time. Thank you to those who purchased equipment from us, the income has helped tremendously to meet all our outstanding bills. We have been able to make gifts of equipment to individuals, charities and community groups with the last few pieces going to charity shops. Little has gone in the skip. Thank you again to everyone who supported us over the years, we carry away with us many great memories and relationships. May God Bless you and keep you safe, Andrew, Emma, Andrew, Sarah and the team. ... See MoreSee Less
