Can you help the Station South Restoration and Cycle Café crowdfunder ?
We’re restoring an old railway station to its former glory and need your help to transform it into a destination cycle café, bar, co-working space and permaculture inspired garden!
We’re Station South – a passionate, creative and abundantly social Community Interest Company set up by three Levenshulme residents (Abigail, Mark and Pauline) with our shared aim to restore this beautiful building and the skills and determination to run a great cycle café from it in the near future.
We’ll be based at the heart of an urban village along the A6 in Levenshulme, on the UK’s longest urban cycleway (The Fallowfield Loop) in a re-imagined Victorian railway station.
We’ll refurbish Levenshulme Station South into a warm and welcoming space and set up a business which will sustain its long term future as an independent, active travel hub, support Levenshulme and neighbours intrinsically and benefit the wider cycling community of Manchester, Stockport and beyond.
We’ll be open in Summer 2019 and we’re going to listen to our customers, volunteers and staff along the way and ensure that Station South will be an open, creative, ethical and socially minded venture that people really want to visit, with or without bikes!
What’s Our Plan For Station South?
The Station South Cafe and Bar will be the core of our business and we’re committed to serving wholesome, quality and healthy food which will also be good value.
The vision for Station South is being developed in collaboration with the community. We’re confident there’s demand and desire for our business in Levenshulme and the support we’ve received so far has been overwhelming. In April 2017, we asked 536 potential customers:
“What is important to you when choosing a place to eat in Levenshulme?” The answers revealed the top three choices as ‘Quality, Value and Healthy’
