Mark Drakeford, the Welsh First Minister visits local cafe and activity space
The leader of the Welsh Government, Mark Drakeford, took the time to visit The Old Chapel in Saltney Ferry last week.
It was an honour to show him around and share with him our vision to create a happier, healthier world by enabling everyone to engage with their interests and ideas, and find a role involved with those things.
Allowing people to be themselves, play a part and make a difference is at the core of what we’re seeking to do here at The Old Chapel. If it’s good for you, those around you and the planet then we say ‘YES!’.
Well done Saltney Ferry
The First Minister took the time to look at your creations including our wall of values, butterflies wall, sound track, hand made cushions and crafts and even the party bunting!
So if you’ve been here drawing, painting, listening, baking, making, playing, helping, singing, teaching, or supporting, then, good job… and thank you! Hopefully doing those things has made a positive difference to your own life and those around you. The First Minister was very encouraging, so be encouraged!
Funding from the Welsh Government
We’ve been very thankful for the funding to renovate the cafe we received from the Welsh Government last year and look forward to continuing to work with them to help provide opportunities for all to start from where they are, engage with their ideas and interests and make a difference in the world, be it in a big or small way.
Can you help fund our community focussed project
We’re looking for further funding while we develop the cafe to seek to make ourselves sustainable:

Opportunities to get involved
We’re looking for:

Do you think you have a part to play in encouraging and enabling people to chill out, join in or start something new!? Please get in touch below or drop in and have a chat and together we’ll find a way. We do like to say YES!
