A New Venture!
Scarborough M.A.T.E.S.

                (Scarborough Men and Tools Enjoy Sheds!)
A new group of like minded people have set up sessions in the Undercroft on Thursdays from 10 am until 3 pm – at a loose end? Not sure what to do after retiring? Come along and see what this group are doing!


The garden is looking beautiful and is proving a lovely place to sit and reflect and enjoy the sun while it shines!

Please come and use this space and enjoy the sculptures that are now in place; we have two large sculptures created by professional artists and a number of smaller ones created by local school children and community members under the direction of Shirley Sheppard.


Party Time!
Why not book your party with us – children or adults?
Contact Ashley in the Cockleshells Café to see his party catering packages and give yourselves more time to enjoy the fun!
