The new café at the Jack Silley Pavilion in Epping has been officially opened by Town Mayor councillor Nigel Avey.

The creation of the cafe - 'Julie’s at Stonards' - is part of Epping Town Council's £250,000 refurbishment of the pavilion at the Stonards Hill recreation ground which has also seen the refurbishment of the football changing rooms and other improvements to the building.

'Julie's at Stonards' is open six days a week (closed Thursdays) and serves hot and cold drinks, light lunches (including full breakfasts), afternoon teas, cakes, snacks and ice creams.

The café extension was added to the pavilion by Epping Town Council at the end of last year.

Town Mayor councillor Nigel Avey, before cutting the ribbon to officially open the cafe on Friday, said: "It is really good to see a town council project come to fruition and to create something which will really benefit local residents.

"This project isn't just about this wonderful cafe but also the refurbished changing rooms and other community space.

"This is an important building in the fabric of community buildings in Epping and I hope we have given it a prolonged and useful life."

An outdoor table tennis table - funded with the help of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme - is set to be installed in the coming months, along with outdoor exercise equipment thanks to Big Lottery Awards for All funding.

Julie Turrell, who runs the café, said: "When the chance arose to open a café in the park that I grew up in, I jumped at it. 

"I’m so excited to be able to add to the character and community facilities of our town and my home for the past 20 years. 

"The cafe, which is dog friendly, is bringing people together and providing a community space for all users of Stonards Hill recreation ground."

'Julie's At Stonards' is open 9am-5pm daily (closed Thursdays).

'Julie's At Stonards' is on Facebook 'Julie’s At Stonards' and Instagram 'Julieatstonards'.
