The Rosemary on the Park cafe closed yesterday following ‘aggressive’ behaviour from a group of travellers on Moor Park.


On Wednesday 11 August, Rosemary on the Park, situated in the Pavilion on Moor Park Avenue, closed due to ‘too many aggressive and antisocial behavioural incidents’ and because the public toilets had been closed due to vandalism.

The cafe thanked members of the public for their kind words and reopened this morning.

“I will keep you updated on when we can reopen. Please be assured this will be as soon as we possibly can. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
