The Woodworks Garden Centre Café in Mold is announced as Café of the Year 2019.

This was by the Chester and North Wales Cyclists’ Touring Club, as voted for by members from a list of 12.
 
To present the award, members of the Club cycled to The Woodworks Café. Fiona Coke, café manager and Steve Morgan, MD of the P&A Group which owns the garden centre welcomed them.
 
Fiona said: “We’re thrilled that the Chester and North Wales Cyclists’ Touring Club awarded us the Café of the Year 2019.
 
“We have put a lot of work into making the café as accessible as possible for everyone. This includes catering for groups both large and small.
 
“Of course, our food and drink menus and our friendly and welcoming staff also had something to do with winning this award I am sure.”
 
The presentation coincided with the cycling group’s Charles Allen anniversary ride. It’s an annual ride held on or near the birthday of Charles Allan, who founded the club in 1983 and died in 1998 at the age of 86.
 
Commenting on the award, Mike Cross, president of the Chester and North Wales CTC said: “There were many votes this year. From a list of 12 different cafés, the winner by a mile was The Woodworks Garden Centre Café.
 
“Congratulations to Fiona and the team for all their hard work in being recognised for this award.”
