After 15 years running the Park café, sisters Tarka and Domani are leaving at the end of October to concentrate on their new bistro café in West Norwood. Southwark Council have now awarded the café concessions contract to Colicci ECSI Ltd. They are a family run business that currently operates cafes in 8 other parks in London including Richmond Park and Kensington Gardens. Formal handover meetings have been held to ensure that there is a seamless transfer of services. The contract will commence on 1 November for a period of seven years.
