Cafe 50 refurbishment

Cafe 50 has a facelift

Café 50 is a café run by Pontyclun Community Council as a social centre for older people. It offers affordable and freshly cooked midday meals and has a continuous programme of social activities to serve every interest.

Over Christmas, Café 50 had a much needed re-paint. It now looks as fresh and as inviting as when it was first opened in 1995. The repainting was undertaken by the Probation Service who provided people fulfilling Community Safety Orders. My thanks to them and to Julius Roszkowski, the Council’s Chief Officer for organising the partnership with the Probation Service. Several community councillors volunteered their time over Christmas to get the Café ready for its re-opening.

The range of activities at Café 50 includes
  • ·         A Weekly Quiz organised by Cllr Gwyn Jackson
  • ·         A monthly Film Club organised by Cllr Mike Davies
  • ·         A weekly social group for families living with Dementia organised by Sabrina Cartlidge with Cllr Margaret Griffiths, Cllr Ann Jackson and other volunteers
  • ·         A weekly Craft Group – Welcome Friends
  • ·         Mature Movers
  • ·         Armchair Yoga
  • ·         Indoor Curling
  • ·         Yarnmongers
