Welcome to the Hornbeam
We are a community organisation based in Walthamstow, London, working with the community on projects around low cost, low-impact living. In collaboration with The Gleaners, we run a pay-what-you-feel cafe so you can pay what is affordable to you (and if you aren’t in a position to pay, take it for free!).
Update: Goodbyes (and hello)
Anne will sadly be leaving us end of September 2021 to start a new adventure in Cornwall. A huge thanks to Anne for all the energy and time she’s put into The Hornbeam – she will be missed!
Josie, who has been an integral part of The Hornbeam especially during the pandemic, has also moved on to new ventures.
We will therefore have a few job opportunities come up at The Hornbeam – A new Finance and Admin Coordinator role is now being advertised (application deadline 11 Oct) and an upcoming Outreach Coordinator role (to be advertised soon). Visit our Work With Us page for more info.
THE GLEANERS CAFE IS CLOSED FROM 16 AUGUST 2021 – MID OCTOBER 2021
The Gleaners Cafe will reopen as eat-in only on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
