French’s cafe opens it doors on Christmas day for those who are alone.


Well done to French’s Cafe in Hornchurch for being an amazing community cafe.

This Christmas, the family run cafe, are once again hosting a special Christmas Day gathering for anyone who is alone on the festive day.

The Hornchurch cafe is opening its doors from 12-5pm for anyone in the community who is spending Christmas alone.

Phoebe who works at French’s cafe told the Havering Daily:

“We did this in 2018 and 2019 and now this year. We are having a traditional Christmas dinner, hot and cold drinks and playing lots of games and quizzes.

“We put all the tables together and get everyone talking so no one is left out.”

Last time this event was held, the cafe had over thirty people and no one knew anyone and everyone left having made new friends.

Phoebe added:

“It is nice to bring people together and help each other. We are looking forward to the event and meeting lots of people to celebrate Christmas together.”

Well done French’s cafe for being amazing community champions.
