CADNANT'S CLAP FOR HELPERS
We are so proud to see how many of our amazing clients have become ‘helpers’ in their communities in North Wales and Cheshire. We wanted to share some of what they are doing and how they are responding to the crisis to support their communities or evolve their business in these difficult times. We’ll be sharing our daily ‘Cadnant’s Clap for Helpers’ below.
Although The Midland’s tapas restaurants remain closed in Beaumaris and Conwy, Mercado are able to offer fresh food and drink services. From assorted vegetable boxes to freshly made pork pies and top-quality meats, Mercado are taking orders which can be delivered to your door, whether you are a vulnerable individual or not. Mercado make delicious lunches for the Royal Voluntary Service for the old folk in Beaumaris and surrounding areas; due to Covid-19 this service has now been adapted to deliver these meals to their homes. Mouth-watering ready meals are also freshly prepared and delivered to the elderly and vulnerable, or may be collected from the store, so you may enjoy the deliciousness of The Midland's tapas at your own home.
Follow the link below to see if you’ll be tempted by Mercado’s take-away menu, we think you will be!
Marine Holiday Park
Whilst we continue to ‘look for the helpers’ we wanted to highlight the selfless decision made by Marine Holiday Park last month. So today’s Cadnant’s Clap for Helpers is for Marine Holiday Park. They decided to close their park; however, the park remains open for NHS workers who may need to isolate away from their families or need a bed to sleep in which is close to the hospital. So far, Marine Holiday Park have become a temporary home to some 16 doctors, 2 surgeons, 2 consultants and 70 nurses, amongst other essential and front-line staff and these figures keep increasing.
Some of these front-line workers were sleeping in their cars at the hospital car parks in order to self-isolate from family members who were elderly or high risk. With Marine Holiday Park now welcoming NHS and front-line workers with open arms, this is no longer necessary, and they may sleep and rest in comfort. Although it is a tough time for tourism businesses at present, it is wonderful to see their services offered to those in need.
Aldford Village Store
Today’s Cadnant’s Clap for Helpers is for Dylan’s. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, Dylan’s have teamed up to work with 'Neges', a new collaborative initiative with Menter Môn, Môn Larder and Gwynedd and Anglesey councils to ensure that food reaches those who need it in North West Wales. As part of the national #FeedTheNHSWales campaign, Dylan's have started to deliver fresh food and meals to staff at Ysbyty Gwynedd and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. These meals include delicious lunch boxes and fresh hot meals to the hospital staff, as well as food packages for the most vulnerable on Anglesey and in Gwynedd.
Please share this post so that those who need help can receive it. If you are able to, we ask that you kindly make a donation to the campaign's JustGiving page so that these fantastic services can continue over the upcoming weeks:
Back in October last year, we won an RTPI North West Award for Planning Excellence for the Green Lake Barns project in Aldford, which included a new village shop. Little did we know just how crucial it would become.
They are working with St John the Baptist, Aldford, and St Mary the Virgin, Bruera to help those who may be self-isolating or vulnerable. Aldford Village Store are doing all they can to ensure the shop is full of supplies and products so that these can be bought in store, or delivered specially to those in self-isolation or those who are vulnerable within the village.
Another example of helpers within the community which really lifts our spirits in these uncertain times.
Grwp Llandrillo Menai
Grwp Llandrillo Menai's Food Technology Centre is working closely with the Welsh Government to support the food manufacturing sector and respond to the challenges within the supply chain. Currently, they have 60 live projects including developing a hand sanitizer recipe which will then be produced by Gin manufacturers across Wales.
Grwp Llandrillo Menai are also supporting the NHS and frontline key workers in their response to Covid-19 by sharing their resources and college sites so that they can be used to deliver induction training for North Wales Police and to host blood bank donation services across North West Wales. Engineering staff from the college are also using the state-of-the-art technology the college has, to produce and construct NHS approved visor parts. All this innovative work helps protect our communities and the front-line workers who are saving lives; it’s really heart-warming to see how Grwp Llandrillo Menai are sharing their resources and adapting them to benefit so many sectors during this pandemic.
Catch 22 Brasserie have set up a system alongside other local businesses such as Menter Mon, Medrwn Mon, Marram Grass, Halen Mon and many others, which ensures that families who rely on local food banks will continue to receive their meals and fresh food, so we thought we would choose Catch22 as today’s Cadnant’s Clap for Helpers. The scheme also delivers freshly made meals to NHS workers at Ysbyty Gwynedd and also other key workers who may be struggling to get food in the fridge after having worked longer hours than usual. All of Catch 22's voluntary work is undertaken by strictly following and adhering to Government guidelines. We are so proud of all the volunteers who are taking part in this thoughtful scheme.
Catch 22 Brasserie
We thought that today’s Cadnant’s Clap for Helpers should go to Rhug Farm Shop and Drive Thru. They are delighted to be able to provide a hot drink and snack to all hard working essential and key workers - this service is offered from the UK's first Farm Drive Thru. Rhug Estate Farm Shop have adopted social distancing measures in their store; however, they do encourage customers to take advantage of their online delivery service where possible to reduce unnecessary travel. The store has also committed to delivering essential goods to your door. If you are worried about loved ones who may not live nearby, then why not take advantage of this well-thought and generous service to ensure they have all the essential items they need and maybe a few extra goodies!
Rhug Estate Farm Shop
Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Adra have allocated 30 members of staff to regularly phone over 1000 of their vulnerable tenants and those over 70 to check-in on how they’re doing. Adra are offering this service as support and help during such an uncertain time. The elderly and vulnerable are unable to continue with basic essential tasks such as picking up prescriptions or getting their shopping, so Adra are offering to do this on their behalf. We think it's such a thoughtful and wonderful gesture.
Due to Adra’s office in Parc Menai being closed, it has now been turned into a testing centre for NHS staff for the time being – a fantastic achievement for all involved!
