Curry house to get new look thanks to Stapleford Town Centre Recovery Fund

21/07/22 - It’s been a tough few years for Indian restaurant Gurkha Nights, but the business is hoping to bounce back stronger than ever after securing £3,800 from the £1m Town Centre Recovery Fund.

The money will be used to help buy new furniture, improve the interior of the restaurant, and spruce up the external signage.  It willMan with dark hair and beard wearing a shirt with arms crossed with the restaurant tables and bar in the background also be used to help with marketing to attract more customers.

The restaurant, on Nottingham Road, was hard hit by COVID and, while the takeaway side of the business is still going strong, the number of customers deciding to eat in is still down on pre-COVID levels.

Mohit Gautan, of the restaurant, said: “This money will be a real boost for us and allow us to build back even stronger. It’s a great idea and we are really grateful to have received this help.

“We hope that by making the restaurant look more appealing and being more active in our marketing we will tempt larger numbers of people to come and see what we have to offer.”

The Town Centre Recovery Fund is the first of Stapleford’s six Towns Fund projects to get underway. It aims to help high street businesses get back on track after the pandemic through: 1) support to expand the way businesses distribute their services and b) support to create buildings of the future through improved accessibility, energy efficiency and visual improvements that enhance the look and feel of the town.

The latest application period has now closed while entries are considered and awarded. If there are any funds remaining, the scheme will reopen later in the year.
