Care South is delighted to announce the grand opening of the Kenwith Pavilion and Pantry, a vibrant hub nestled in the picturesque grounds of Kenwith Castle. This multifaceted space, aptly named the Pavilion, seamlessly integrates a convenient shop, a cosy lounge, and a charming coffee house to create an environment of Food, Fun and Friendship.
The Pavilion shop is stocked with an array of everyday essentials, from fresh fruits and vegetables to toiletries, ready meals, greetings cards and a selection of curated gifts. Adding to the allure is the coffee shop, offering an inviting space to savour homemade cakes and a variety of hot and cold beverages. It is anticipated that the shop will secure a license to serve alcohol so that visitors can indulge in a refreshing beer or a glass of wine on the terrace during the warmer months.
Open to all who are connected to Kenwith Castle, including residents of the bungalow developments in Kenwith Castle Gardens and Kenwith Meadows, cottage residents, staff, residents and their relatives, the Pavilion ensures inclusivity. For those who may find the distance challenging, a 6-seater golf buggy is available for transport.
Currently focusing on coffee and cake services, the Pavilion has exciting plans for expansion. Future offerings will include light lunches, a weekly breakfast brunch, afternoon teas, monthly Sunday roasts, and special themed evenings such as Tapas and Italian nights. The Pavilion will host a variety of events, including quiz nights, games afternoons, film clubs, live music and pétanque challenges on the new pitch. A weekly fitness class is already underway, and the spacious venue is perfect for larger gatherings such as Christmas parties.
Simon Bird, Chief Executive Officer at Care South, said: “The Kenwith Pavilion is a warm, inviting, and comfortable space designed for residents of Kenwith Castle, Kenwith Gardens and Kenwith Meadows. It’s more than just a place to shop; it’s a treasure trove of tasty treats and culinary delights, fostering a sense of community and connection.”
To mark this milestone, the Pavilion was inaugurated with a special party attended by residents, families, and Care South team members. The celebratory atmosphere created unforgettable memories and officially welcomed this fantastic new facility.
