We know many of you have been missing our delicious bird-friendly coffee or grabbing a bite to eat when visiting our beautiful Aire Valley sites and we have some great news! We now have a take away catering offer available at both of our sites, and our shop at Fairburn Ings is open for business.
From Monday 2 November, we are temporarily changing the opening hours of our shop and catering offer, due to limited staff capacity.
So what's now available to you at our Aire Valley sites?
