A SPECIALISED café for people who have undergone grief following the loss of a loved one is to launch in Flintshire this week.

This Thursday (July 11) will see the launch of the 'Bereavement Café' in Mold's Daniel Owen Centre.

The meeting will run in the centre's café area from 5pm to 7pm and be its home on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month from then on.

The Bereavement Café is a place where people who have lost a loved one or are affected by terminal illness in any way can meet and speak freely about their feelings and experiences to people in a similar position.

It is not a counselling service, but a way to help bring people who have or are suffering grief and isolation to come together and share their experiences.

You may be more of a talker or better at quietly listening, but that does not matter as the café is intended to be a place where emotions can be expressed freely and stories can be shared. It is a space where people can talk about the pain of loss and also find courage and strength in knowing they are not alone.

The Daniel Owen Centre can be found at Earl Road, Mold, CH7 1AP
