Mossley cafe set for wine bar transformation

The Station Cafe in Mossley, Greater Manchester, is set to be turned into an upmarket wine bar and eatery with funding provided by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

Cheryl Buckley, a resident of the Mossley area, acquired the Manchester Road premises and is developing the property with the help of her daughter, Georgina, and son, Ross.

The new venue will be called Aurora Caffé Bar, according to an RBS press release, and hopes to open for business in August. R T Hutchins, a local contractor and the brother of Cheryl, will be carrying out the renovation work at the site.

Cheryl said: “I am really pleased that our acquisition of the Station Café has been successful. The venue is in a great location and we plan to completely re-launch the business as an upmarket café and wine bar which will be open seven days a week.

“Now we have taken over the ownership, we are working really hard behind the scenes to get the shop up and running.”

She added: “We have also been granted an alcohol license and will enable us to run the venue as a wine bar on an evening.”

Steve Cooper, the relationship manager with RBS, said: “I am pleased that we have been able to support Cheryl and her family with the acquisition of the former Station Café.

“Their plans to create a coffee shop and wine bar are excellent and are exactly what the town needs. We are looking forward to seeing the end result of the renovation work and to visiting the venue when it opens.”

Cheryl plans to host a launch party next month to celebrate the opening of the Aurora Caffé Bar.
