‘Save the Poppy Pantry’ petition continues as site is put out to tender

A petition to ‘save the Poppy Pantry’ in the City of London Cemetery has received over 5,000 signatures.

It follows the landlord’s decision to put the café site out to tender, with the Poppy Pantry’s five-year lease coming to an end this October. “I took over vacant premises in 2016 that nobody wanted and spent a vast amount of money and time building it up to a very successful café and wake catering service. I decided to start a petition to see who the public wants to run this café,” said Paul Charters.
