About Us

How we started

Thirsty Café came into being when a group of local volunteers came together with the vision of opening an independent community coffee shop in Marcham. The purpose of the café is:

  • to provide an informal, welcoming and safe environment for the local community to meet
  • to serve good quality, affordable coffee, tea and refreshments
  • to facilitate and develop opportunities for community groups to meet
  • offer a rewarding and constructive volunteer programme
  • run an economically viable project with any profit reinvested back into our community

In March 2020 we officially registered with the Financial Conduct Authority as a Community Benefits Society with the legal name Marcham Community Café Limited. 

While we work towards having a permanent base, we run a pop up café twice a week at Marcham Centre. Come by between 9 and 11:30 am on Wednesdays and Saturdays for hot and cold drinks, homemade cakes, packaged snacks and a small selection of hot food. 


The café is run by volunteers from the local community. Read more about our volunteers here. If you're interested joining the team, contact us at

Cafe Managers

The day to day operations are managed by our part-time manager, Nicci.

Management Committee

The Management Committee is selected by the café membership at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). All members have an opportunity to stand and vote for members of the Management Committee. Find out about becoming a member here. Our AGM is held each Autumn.

Below are the volunteers who make up the Management Committee.
