From April 2023, two new businesses will be operating from Cae Glas Park following the award of licences to trade to K&C Yarwood Ltd and The Coffee Hatch by Oswestry Town Council. The decision was made at the Town Council meeting on the 22nd of March, who accepted a recommendation from the Cae Glas Management Group following the advertisement of the licences.

Eight businesses submitted proposals for consideration for the two, three-year licences.

A spokesperson from K&C Yarwood Ltd said “We are very excited that we have been invited to be the new ice cream provider in Cae Glas Park Oswestry. We look forward to working with the council and local community over the summer, keeping everyone refreshed with dairy ice cream, ice lollies and vegan ice cream. We take pride in being part of our local green parks and investing in our green spaces to enhance everyone’s enjoyment.”

A spokesperson from The Coffee Hatch said “We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to place our mobile coffee hatch in the park. We can’t wait to serve our amazing coffee, cakes, smoothies, and other delights to all the wonderful people that visit us from Oswestry & beyond.”

On behalf of the Town Council, Town Clerk Arren Roberts said, “We are aware of the public interest in the award of the licences and would like to thank Scoopilicious and Llynclys Farm for the service that they have given to visitors over many years. Public bodies have a duty to protect the public purse and all income collected in Oswestry is used for the benefit of Oswestry residents. These new businesses provide an exciting offer, and we look forward to working with them over the next few years.”
