A SOUTH Yorkshire park café is reopening tomorrow after a new tenant was found who has taken on a five-year lease.

Elsecar Park café will be run by June Turner after her application was chosen by Barnsley Council from dozens of others.

She plans to open the café from 10am to 4pm, serving hot drinks and light snacks, and has plans to serve full meals in the future.

June, who will run the venue with her partner Brian Hudson, has had a personal connection with the park from a young age and says it’s been a dream of hers to work there.

She said: “Working at the park is a passion for me and brings back happy memories of time spent here when I was growing up.

“It’s a wonderful place.”

Barnsley Council said June has vast experience in the hospitality sector.
