In 2011 an idea was developed to run a weekly cafe in Cilcain Village Hall for the benefit of villagers and the many visitors, cyclists and walkers who visit the village and surrounding area.
The plan was to create a meeting place for people to enjoy a get-together over a cake and cuppa.
The hall is now open most* Saturdays between 2.00 pm – 5.00 pm for different charities and groups to hire for the purpose of raising funds and awareness by selling home-made cakes, organising a raffle or tombola, and other activities.
(* Not during August.)
THOUSANDS OF POUNDS HAVE BEEN RAISED FOR CHARITY BY CILCAIN COMMUNITY CAFÉ
Since the start, more than 50 charities and local groups have run a cafe at the Hall, many of them returning every year:
Café hosts have included : the Red Cross, Pancreatic Cancer Action, Epilepsy Research Wales, Marie Curie Cancer Care, North Clwyd Animal Rescue, the Food Bank, Flintshire Parkinson’s Support Group, the British Heart Foundation, Mold Sugarcraft Group, Cilcain WI, Côr Cilcain, Cilcain Craft Group and Cilcain Community Council.
