What we're about

 The Black Cat has five very simple and clear objectives:

  • To meet the needs of the whole community of Northleach through the provision of a community café, meeting space and a wide diversity of activities and services
  • To be a visible presence for the church in the centre of the town
  • To provide employment to local people and especially to give young people in our town a positive and rewarding experience of work
  • To operate to high and strict ethical standards in every aspect of the business
  • Once profitable, to re-distribute our annual surplus to community organisations in the town

The Black Cat is owned by the Northleach Church and Town Enterprise CIC, the wholly owned trading company of St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Northleach. Huge thanks are owed to the Parochial Church Council for supporting the vision for the café and backing this with an investment of £40,000 to secure it for the community.
