Poppy Cafe Opens in Marlpit Lane Memorial Park


We are pleased to inform you that on Saturday 9th November 2013 the cafe in Marlpit Lane Park and Recreation Ground reopened after being closed for near 4 years. The cafe has been opened by local residents Dawn Douglas and her mother-in law Terri Douglas as a family concern. After a number of delays and setbacks the building has been refurbished by Croydon and Council tastefully decorated and by Dawn and Terri.


After careful consideration they decided the cafe should have a name fitting with the memorial park and have chosen the name Poppy Cafe and coincidentally they were able to open on the 9th November the Saturday prior to Remembrance Sunday.


The cafe will be open from 8.00am in the mornings Monday to Saturday and later on Sundays until park closing during the coming winter. They will have a range of home cooked food aimed at those playing sport, using the park, local workers in Ulswater Crescent Business Park and people just passing by. Free wifi will also be available.
