Saddened to hear about Castle Bakery

Responding to news that Castle Bakery are to close their shops, Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth said:

“I was saddened to hear the news that Castle Bakery are to close all their shops – including the ones in Holyhead, Menai Bridge and Beaumaris. My thoughts are with the staff who are losing their jobs on Anglesey and beyond.

“Like many others on the island, I grew up on Castle Bakery bread and visiting their shops or cafes was always a treat. It is almost an iconic brand on Anglesey, and the Holyhead branch even featured in the Rough Guide to Britain. It will be very sad to see it go.

“Bad new such as this on job losses and blows to our high streets emphasises the need to do all we can to create new employment opportunities on the island and to revitalise our town centres.”
