The Kingfisher cafe at the Wolseley Centre has been reopened to the public after more than six months of closure due to coronavirus restrictions.

Jon Owen, press and social media officer at the centre, said the reopening of the shop would give a massive boost to conservation work in the area around the centre, which is located near Rugeley.

He said: “It’s massive as it helps with our fundraising efforts to raise money for our conservation work in Staffordshire.”

The cafe will be open from 10am to 3pm seven days a week and will have a limited menu on offer.

Mr Owen said: “The visitors centre and toilets onsite are still closed, but we’re slowly turning the corner and while the centre remains shut, people can still go out and enjoy the grounds and the nature we have. We rely on seeing people back in the cafe.”
