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

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 will also be used to help with marketing to attract more customers.
