Ten years of Simon Community street cafe

May 21 2009
The Street Cafe is a chance to find a little peace, have a cup of tea and read the paper The Simon Community celebrated 10 years of its Street Cafe on June 27. Between 5pm and 7pm, regulars, invitees, trustees, volunteers and workers came together to celebrate a decade of the service at the Church of Mary-le-Strand (on the Strand). The Street Cafe, which doesn't usually have food, is a chance to find a little peace in the day, have a cup of tea and read the paper. One user told The Pavement that it's "a great place to take a break". Asked, at this anniversary, about its future in Westminster, Mark Palframan, Director of Services at the Simon Community, told us "it's appreciated, and we'll keep going as long as people come".
