More community facilities open at Tatton Gardens
16 June 2023
Following the completion of the Tatton Gardens development earlier this year, the community cafe, GP surgery and community centre are now up and running and residents of the extra care scheme are moving in.
Tatton Gardens has most recently welcomed Whimsy Coffee to operate the community café which opened its doors earlier this month, and on Friday welcomed Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP and Leader of Chorley Council, Councillor Alistair Bradley to view the new facility
Operated by Lisa and Gail, the community café boasts both indoor and outdoor seating areas with a range of sweet treats and hot and cold savoury options on offer. Café operators are also in discussions with some local community groups about the café becoming a regular venue for their meetings.
Leader of Chorley Council, Councillor Alistair Bradley said "The cafe is another great addition to Tatton Gardens which is already being enjoyed by residents and the local community - it's a place for people to socialise, grab a bite to eat after visiting other facilities, such as the revamped Tatton recreation ground.
"The development is so much more than a building - it has brought much needed quality facilities to the community, such as healthcare provisions in the form of the new GP surgery, extra care accommodation for the over 55's, a new community centre for hire, children's nursery and now the community café."
The new onsite GP surgery (operated by NM Health Innovation on behalf of the NHS), is now in full operation with a resident GP and other clinical and reception staff, providing a much needed amenity for the area - a replacement for the old surgery which was located further down Eaves Lane.
The new community centre within Tatton Gardens is already well used for one-off events and by groups who use it as a regular venue for exercise classes, training sessions and more. Booking enquiries can be made on our community centre web page.
The development is also home to 62 extra care apartments with stylish communal areas, which saw new residents start to move in at the end of April.
The children's nursery space at the site was the first to be occupied, operated by Tatton Nursery, who moved in over the Christmas period.
