NAAFI Cafe in Catterick now open

Friday 10th March 2023 was a special day for NAAFI as we opened the doors to our first high street cafe in Catterick Garrison.

To celebrate ahead of the opening we invited some of our key contacts in the Catterick community to preview the cafe and share a glass of bubbles with us. Attendees included John Reynolds; Military Housing Liaison Officer, Mark Hill MBE, Elizabeth Spivey; RBL Chairman of North & East Yorkshire County, Kevin Foster; local Country Councilor and Rebecca Weatherstone and Lisa Whittles representing HIVE. A special thank you to all who shared the evening with us and also joined us on opening day!

On opening day we were pleased to host Sergeant Major WO1 Ray Nyambira representing the Garrison, to cut the ribbon with Assistant Store Manager Michelle Emmerson. Despite a thick layer of snow outside, the sun came out for us as we welcomed in our first customers and enjoyed listening to some first-hand feedback on the space we have created and our brand new mess tin Breakfast Baps!

Find us at Princes Gate, Richmond Road, DL9 3BA from 8am – 5:30pm every day. Meet our new baristas and view our online menu before you visit.
