Description

Well, let us take some time to explain everything, including; who we work with (partnerships), why we do it, why we are so successful and how we have got to our concept. We have successfully managed to set up and run a permanent and well-established coffee / retail shop at Manor House Gardens. The venture, known as 'Pistachios in the Park', provides non-greasy food that is "Jamie Oliver friendly" - chips, burgers and other similar unhealthy food are not served. We also sell "Wooden Trains.." Educational wooden toys that are made from reforested wood and EC regulated, all our wooden toys aid in Motor Skills, Coordination, etc, incorporated in play. The cafe experiences continual support from the local community and the user groups. It is run in partnership with Glendale and Lewisham Local Authority. In addition to normal day-to-day running of the cafe, we liaise with the local community to support activities taking place in the park throughout the year which enable the business to be involved in providing food and snacks for those using the park. Examples of activities that we successfully organise include Farmers' Food markets, annual organised picnics and theme parties for events such as Halloween.

We are currently engaged in a projects with Lewisham, Greenwich, Haringey, Reigate-Banstead council and Glendale Management to enhance the use of Parks and Open Green Spaces within the boroughs through the provisions of catering services. Pistachios in the Park's aim is to revive community interest and use of parks and open green spaces within a safe,family-oriented environment.
