A Local Conversation in Anglesey

13 October 2016

"We’ve had older people popping in too who have said it reminds them of the milk bars they used to have in the fifties and sixties. It’s bringing that community spirit back.”

“Local residents have been talking about having a youth café for several years and, through the Local Conversation project, we’ve finally been able to make it happen.

This is part of several priorities determined by people in Anglesey. From the start, young people have been involved.

“I used to spend my evenings walking around the streets in Holyhead and I was bored, but now, every day I come to the Pod and enjoy myself with my friends.” - Robert Thomas - resident

They’ve helped design the Pod, name it, shape it and run it. At the moment young people are working in the kitchen but they’re not fully involved in the food preparation, so some of them have signed up to do their Level 2 Food Hygiene so they can fully take control.
