The Windmill Cafe at the Waseleys set ready to reopen

VISITORS to the Waseley Hills Country Park will be able to grab a snack and a drink from The Windmill Cafe which reopens its doors for takeaways on Monday, June 1.

From then, the lockdown restrictions will be eased, enabling gatherings of up to six people, as long as they are held outdoors and social distancing rules are observed.

Fresh barista coffees, homemade cakes, and a range of sandwiches, paninis, and jacket potatoes will be available at the site for walkers to enjoy after a stroll over the hills.

And dog owners bringing their four-legged friends can get canine treats for them too – The Windmill café serves doggy sausages, biscuits and even doggy ice cream.

The café will be open from 10am every day.

Coun Lucy Hodgson, cabinet member with responsibility for communities at Worcestershire County Council, said: “As the rules around lockdown change, it is important to remember to continue getting daily exercise.

“Get outside for around an hour each day is important for mental wellbeing as well as physical health.”

The council has been working closely with the Windmill café tenants and said it was excited to see it up and running again.

“The Waseley Hills offer glorious views across Birmingham and all the way to the Malverns.

“With the café now reopening you can enjoy the view and the fresh air and treat yourself to an ice cream.

“However it is still important that people continue to stick to guidance given by the government, so please still abide to the social distancing measures.”

The café is situated near the main car park.

Social distancing measures will need to be observed in order to purchase food and drink from the café.

All country parks and nature reserves managed by the county council are open for Worcestershire residents to take their daily exercise in.
