We are delighted to announce a new initiative from Ilford Transition Town is running it’s first community cafe.
The group met last Autumn to think through the best way to go about it and came up with (a) piggy back onto an event or use an established cafe (b) start small to build up experience and profile (c) have other events and activities going on at the same time.
Stalls booked so far:
Lesley Maria cake stands, Kimiko Loves upcycled fashion, home made natural cleaning products from Rosie Eco Cleaning Services London, green/eco book stall, vintage clothing with Hayley, recycled bags and tie dyed clothes with Odun Odundipe…. and a fantastic range of recycled bikes!
The cafe will be selling cakes, tortillas and quiches, filter coffee and a range of teas. Begona Belmote of Planet Falafel (and Transition Town Ilford) will be cafe manager.
They hope to have a bunting making activity at the same time and cafe-customers and market-goers can help by cutting the shapes for a skilled seamstress to create beautiful bunting to sell.
Hoping that the launch of new green market and community goes well. Please do spread the word. Info can be obtained from Begona on firstname.lastname@example.org or Ros on 07957 534908.
