Community cafe trial hailed a success.
More than 100 people turned up at a cafe day at the Catholic Church Hall on Coleshill Street, Flint last week, including Matt Wright, the council's executive member for tourism, MP David Hanson and AM Sandy Mewies.
The project was the joint work of Flint Communities First and special school Ysgol Maes Hyfryd.
Headteacher Jane Kelly said: "The community cafe trial run was a very successful event.
"The people who were able to attend were very positive about the proposal to set up this joint venture.
"Our students were very motivated by the event and there were certainly lots of learning experiences throughout the day."
Kieran Duff, chair of Communities First, said: "This is another important step in testing out the viability of this project and I''m delighted that the feedback has been so positive."
