Forget Me Not pop-up café in Bishop's Stortford again raising money for Alzheimer's Society and Stroke Association




A former Herts and Essex High School student will once again be hosting a pop-up café in her family garden in Bishop's Stortford in memory of her father.

The Forget Me Not Café will be in session next Saturday and Sunday (August 29 and 30) for the fourth successive summer.

Once again, Morgan Giles is raising money for the Alzheimer's Society and the Stroke Association.

This year, because of the coronavirus crisis, there will be social distancing in the garden at 45 Cannons Close as supporters tuck into a range of rolls filled with mozzarella, pesto and tomato, or beetroot, feta and chickpeas, or hummus, pepper and baby leaf, as well as ploughman's platters, home-made savoury quiches and sausage rolls, cream teas, cakes and traybakes.

"We're putting in place social distancing and extra hygiene measures – our guests can now even order a takeaway or local delivery," said Morgan.

"Local businesses have, as usual, been very generous with raffle prizes, as our neighbours and friends have been with their time, baked goods and even gardens. Dorringtons is donating all of our baguettes and scones this year too, which is amazing."

When Morgan first set up the annual café, all proceeds went to the Alzheimer's Society, but after her father Nigel suffered a stroke and died in February last year, she and mum Sue decided to raise money for the Stroke Association too.

The café will be open from 11am to 4pm over the weekend. To find out more, email forgetmenotcafe2020@gmail.com or to donate see https://www.justgiving.com/teams/forgetmenotcafe .
