Yesterday Surrey Docks Farm opened its new cafe offering full meals and light refreshments. The operating hours are Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm.
The very welcome cafe launch comes just ahead of the Spring Fair this Saturday 22 May. Open from 10am to 5pm.
There are lots of attractions planned but the big event of the day is the opening of the Thames Path within the farm. New gates at the east end will also be formally opened.
The path is to be available for use Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm at first but eventually it will be open daily during daylight hours at least.
On Saturday the new farm manager Barry Mason will be there to welcome both walkers and cyclists.
