The P&A Group Of Companies celebrated the official launch of its new Woodworks Café and Gift Shop located in the heart of the P&A Garden Centre on Friday 28th March 2014.

Woodworks Café, the latest addition to the company’s considerable facilities, was officially opened by Dr Barrie Kennard, Director of Leadership Management Wales. Staff welcomed guests, including the Rht Honourable Lord Barry Jones and Lady Janet Jones, Sandy Mewies, AM for Delyn, Carolyn Thomas, Chair of Flintshire County Council, Councillor Hayden Bateman for the Bromfield area of Mold and Councillor Marian Bateman for Northop.

Dr Barrie Kennard opened the café by emphasising how important it is to support leaders in Wales. He went on to say that the P&A Group is a perfect example of how LMW’s leadership programmes can significantly boost the growth and prosperity of organisations operating in Wales. Steve Morgan, Managing Director of The P&A Group Of Companies, has greatly benefitted from the support of Leadership Management Wales having received leadership and management training from Learning To Inspire. He went on to win Best Leader Award in the Enhancing Leadership And Management Awards In 2011.

Councillor Carolyn Thomas, who was invited to speak at the event, said, “I am delighted the P&A Group has helped to make Mold a destination town with the opening of this stunning café and gift shop. This extended garden centre will hopefully attract more visitors to the area, making Flintshire a great place to visit. The company does so much for our community in many ways and I wish them the very best of luck with this wonderful new venture.”

Commenting on this latest investment, Steve Morgan said, “We really want to build on the achievements of our family business. Woodworks Café adds a new dimension to our company and we want people living in our community and visitors to the area to enjoy local produce, homemade food and a warm welcome.”
