Churchill will start early in 2015 and were the successful bidders after an open tendering process took place.

“We are very pleased to be working with Churchill Catering – they have a good understanding of our business and already run the catering in other areas within the Forestry Commission.
“I’d like to thank our current caterers Cream O’Galloway for helping get our new visitor centre off to a great first year.
“We’ll all be working together to ensure a seamless transition of catering so that visitors will continue to be well looked after.”
