The sun has finally decided to grace us with it's presence - so let's make the most of it and have a picnic lunch on Tooting Bec Common :)
So for those of you that are homeworkers, shift workers, mums or free during the afternoon for whatever reason - come along!
The plan is to have a relaxed lunch/afternoon on the Common and then de-camp to the LONG ROOM BAR BEER GARDEN later on; there's a separate meetup event posted for the Long Room Bar part of the day - so only RSVP here for the picnic part of the day & if you'll be joining us for drinks later then RSVP again/separately for the Long Room meetup pls. It's a short walk from Tooting Bec Common to the Long Room Bar.
Let's hope the sun comes out for us on the day!
WHAT TO BRING:
You can either bring some food/drink along with you or you can buy something from the Cafe on the Common (more info below). Bring something to sit on, as the cafe seating is limited so we'll be sat on the grass most probably.
About the the Cafe:
Nestled on the edge of the common is the historic Victorian park building that is now home to our café. Close to the children's play area our family friendly café offers traditional ice cream, a wide range of hot and cold drinks, snack and meals and home cooked freshly prepared specials daily.
For generations Tooting Bec Common has been a meeting place for the people in the area. It is an excellent place to relax, admire the local wildlife or have lunch in the cafe. In the warmer months the common plays host to regular festivals, community events and music concerts.
HOW TO FIND US:
We'll be camped opposite/near the cafe on Tooting Bec Common - see map/weblink below; the cafe is marked by a red dot around the middle of the map and the directions of Tooting Bec & Balham tube stations are also marked on the map (on the left hand side of the page).
