At the start of August, Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, visited Finley’s Café in Llangollen, to officially “cut the ribbon” and open the café.
The café, which is owned by Rebekah Price, was named after their family dog, Finley. It started as a sandwich shop which Rebekah ran for 7 years which has now expanded into the next-door premises to become a fully operational café. All their cakes and scones are homemade and the business has already created four new jobs for local people in the town.
Commenting on the visit, Mr Baynes, said:
“I was really thrilled to pop along and visit Rebekah and her team at Finley’s Café earlier this month. I’m so pleased that a homegrown business in Llangollen has expanded – under challenging economic circumstances – and has created jobs for local people. It’s important now that as residents we vote with our feet and support our high-quality small businesses in Llangollen – not least because they form the backbone of our local economy. As an animal lover, I found the story behind the café’s name really touching. I would like to wish Rebekah, her family and her staff every success for the future.”
