Dinas’ Primary School closed in 2002 but it didn’t take long for local people to negotiate, fundraise and recruit supporters so that it could open again as ‘Yr Hen Ysgol’. There are activities on offer now for everyone, ranging from a film club to craft groups, charity fundraising, play groups, ‘New Age Kurling‘, lunches and teas, bridge, table tennis , yoga and more.
Right from the beginning of the project though, as you can see if you look carefully at the road-side sign in the photo above, tea and coffee have been part of the welcome. And now the cafe has just been re-newed and it’s even better.
Bara Brith will be open Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm. It’s just the place for a hot drink and something to go with it. The coffee machine promises quality* and the numbered wooden spoons promise table service. If you’re looking for somewhere for a chat with friends, to meet village people, a sit down with refreshment after a country walk Bara Brith is waiting to welcome you.
*Wouldn’t the cups warm more quickly if they were upside down?
