CDC gives green light to Goods Shed plans

Cotswold's planners today approved the latest planning drawings for the exterior of the Shed. This means we can go forward to detailed contractors' specifications ready for work to start.

The key changes in the latest plan are the addition of a glass foyer in front of the main sliding doors, under the restored canopy. We were also required to add a fire escape to the rear of the building for the safety of visitors on the raised mezzanine.

Thank you, Cafe 53!

The Goods Shed Project can scarcely thank Piotr and the hard-working team at Tetbury's Cafe 53 enough for raising £750 for the project at a fund raising supper on Friday.

Nearly 50 friends and supporters of the project enjoyed the Cafe's distinctive atmosphere over a three-course meal, making for a memorable and fun evening. Piotr and the crew gave their time for free, taking only the cost of ingredients from the ticket income. 

And a big thank-you, too, to Jill Dodge for helping turn the idea into reality.

If you've not visited Cafe 53 yet, they are open 7 days a week for food; in fact, it's the only place where you can get a delicious meal throughout the day, every day of the week! Breakfast is served between 8.30am and 11am (from 10am to noon on Sundays) and lunch is ready from 11am to 4.30pm.



Meet 'Le Dépôt Ferroviaire'!

Bordeaux meets Brunel as Tetbury Rail Lands Regeneration Trust brings wine fans this very appealing French red with a unique label featuring the Goods Shed. 

This fine 2010 Bordeaux Supérieur originates from soils contiguous with the gravel banks of Pomerol and St Emilion. Already making delicious drinking, it will continue to develop in aromatic complexity if cellared for up to five years. 

It's on sale exclusively at Tetbury's well-stocked Vinotopia wine merchant in The Chipping car park.

A portion of the price of every bottle goes to the Goods Shed restoration fund to help bring the town’s grand old Victorian Railway Goods Shed back into use as a community arts centre and cinema. 

The perfect present for friends and family in Tetbury or anywhere in the world!
