What it means …
“The Ellenbird” is named after my grandmother. I was blessed to have both of my grandmothers for a long part of my life, and they taught me to stand tall and proud, that working hard could only make me stronger, and that having a heart that wants to give will only stand me in good stead wherever I might go. It is only fitting that Gran’s place of honour in my heart, is now also on the wall of my dream.
What it is…
The Ellenbird is a family centre, that gives children a safe and healthy environment to play in whilst parents can relax and enjoy something indulgent at the coffee shop, or browse through the gift shop. It’s a place where you will be made to feel welcome, all the time. A place to rest, or take a breather, in between the hectic schedule of your day. A place to catch up with old friends, and to make new ones. A place for small business meetings, conferences or social gatherings. With everything under one roof, a convenient setting and a willingness to go the extra mile for whatever it is you may be looking for – we hope The Ellenbird will be somewhere that suits everyone’s needs.
What we have to offer …
A cosy Coffee Shop – Somewhere comfortable to come, sit, relax, catch up and enjoy something that suits your tastebuds. Simple but nice, and affordable is what we are aiming for. And with daily/ weekly specials I am sure everyone will enjoy a visit.
The Ellenbird Gift Shop – we host our own gift shop, which incorporates many smaller shops being managed by us. This gives smaller businesses an opportunity to be able to display and market their goods. Also including already established businesses in Hilton and surrounds, we offer their patrons a convenient one stop, under one roof, shopping experience. The Ellenbird is stocked full to the brim with some special, tasteful items.
The Party Area is an outdoor, covered and paved, venue in the garden – you have a blank canvas to create a party which suits your wishes, or we can assist you with the planning, catering and decorating of the party for you .
Conference and weekly room rental areas: We have space to host workshops, small business meetings and conferences, pop up shops, and space to use the facility on a daily / weekly rotation.

Janet Anderson – Remedial Therapy (HDE, FDE)
