Simon Community to re-open second street caf?©

September 08 2010
The charity needs to expand to cater for their large number of users The Simon Community in London is looking for a second venue to run its popular street café, after its original location on the Strand closed earlier this year.

Its current café in St Giles-in-the-Field, near Denmark Street, sees up to 100 people on a busy weekend and has become so popular that the charity is now looking to expand again.

The Simon Community urged readers to contact them with suggestions or offers for a suitable venue, which it hopes to open as soon as possible.

The street café at St Giles currently runs for two hours on a Saturday and a Sunday, offering food and drinks or simply a place to relax for a couple of hours without the worry of being moved on. Dave Clark, a trustee of the charity, said that any new café would run on different days to maximise the service.

Contact if you have any venue suggestions.
