Doncaster is different, we all know that. We are different, so we do differently. Join the movement!
Providing public toilets during cafe hours, the PIT STOP offers a great all day breakfast, and a range of drinks, hot and cold meals, and snacks. Managed and operated by Manna Community CIC, the PIT STOP name was developed in consultation with the local community and directly reflects the Pavilions strong historical links with the mining industry in Bentley. With a focus on families and communities, we will provide a range of support; services, events and projects based around four community themes. These themes are hospitality, health, heritage and hope.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our recent Community Audit for the Pavilion and Park revealed that Cafe facilities, Public toilets, Drinks, snacks and Ice cream vendor (in descending order) were the top desirables from members of the community, with Public WiFi access, Outdoor shelter and access to Pavilion team members being less important. Going forward Manna Community CIC will undertake a number of additional focus groups and audits to supplement our current findings.
Steps to get it done:
During August 2018, Doncaster Council asked Manna Community CIC to act as interim tenants of Bentley Pavilion while the council assets team prepared the building ready to go out to public tender. During the interim tenancy, Manna Community CIC agreed to work with individuals, churches, community groups and businesses (based in the Bentley area) for the purpose of preparing and submitting a collaborative tender.
