Colin Brentnall has worked at the café at Alyn Waters since it first opened 15 years ago

Long standing Caffi Cyfle work opportunity volunteer team member turns 60! . The cafe has been operated by local charity Groundwork North Wales since April 2019 who continue to support the volunteer work opportunities team members. Staff from the charity Groundwork North Wales wanted to celebrate this milestone with Colin and thank him for his hard work at the cafe.

Adrian Thomas venue manager for the café and function room was helped by Ben Lloyd and Helen Hughes to bake a fantastic three-layer birthday cake. Lesley Roberts Colin’s sister came down to join in the celebrations along with the café team.

Lesley explained that Colin loves coming to the café;

“Colin loves coming to work here at Alyn Waters. Being part of the team has really brought him out of himself. He even tells us what to do at home with the recycling as that’s part of his job here.”

Colin will be celebrating with the rest of his family and friends with a party on his actual birthday this Saturday February 1st, 2020.
