Next Buy Local day planned for August 10

* Book Local day is planned for Augsut 10.

Llangollen Preservation has its next Buy Local day planned for Friday, August 10.

According to a spokesman for the organisation, the last Buy Local event, held recently,  was met with great enthusiasm by Watkin & Williams, Courtyard Books and The Oak Chest jewellers and followed similar endorsements by local greengrocers and butchers the previous month.

The spokesman said:  “We even grabbed the editorial of Country Life! (see our website:

He added: “Our next Buy Local day focuses on our cafés, the ideal way to socialise, relax, and enjoy the whole shopping experience in Llangollen.

“We’re changing the day from Saturday to Friday so more people can enjoy it, and we’ll be putting up posters closer to the day.

“The Courtyard Café (behind Barclays) is offering free toasted teacake with every hot drink  and May’s Pantry offers a free tea or coffee with every cooked meal for the day.

“Maxine's Café & Bookshop offer - for every  child’s meal purchased - free entry into the Play Centre ‘Dragon’s Den’, and the Village Bakery offers a free Welsh cake with a tea or coffee.

“And it doesn’t stop there. If you take one of our leaflets to the Cottage Tearooms on Ham and Eggs Square, you’ll get a pot of tea or filter coffee and a teacake for just £2.

“Our leaflets will be circulating at all the participating Buy Local shops shortly.”
