October 2019 see’s Caffi Cyfle celebrate its 6 month birthday! Groundwork North Wales took over management of the café on behalf of Wrexham County Borough Council in April this year.
With the introduction of new menus featuring locally sourced, fresh and sustainable ingredients, visitors to the café can enjoy freshly prepared and locally sourced homemade food and cakes. The café has continued to welcome the wide range of visitors that enjoy the benefits, Alyn Waters Country park has to offer.
Groundwork North Wales has been able to continue to support the volunteer opportunities provided to adult social services. It is our aspiration to develop Caffi Cyfle, to support people with learning difficulties to gain new skills and experiences.
Martin, a young man from Wrexham who lives independently in supported living, volunteers at Caffi Cyfle two days a week . Martin is learning new skills and making a full contribution helping to run the café and has an important role serving customers and preparing food.
“I am glad I am still able to go to Alyn Waters and Caffi Cyfle. I like making the cakes and serving the customers. I do washing and drying the pots sometime. I like being busy”
Martin’s Mum Jackie Grice said
“It is such a relief that Martin has the opportunity to go to Caffi Cyfle and it is good to see that he has a good relationship with staff at the Café”.
