Closing Castle Bakery 'is my family', says employee

A bakery firm, which has traded in north Wales for 130 years, has closed with the loss of dozens of jobs.

Castle Bakery, founded in 1885, will shut its six shops in Caernarfon, Bangor, Menai Bridge, Beaumaris and Holyhead on Saturday.

The family-run company was founded by William Roberts on his return to Anglesey after a period in the colony in Patagonia, Argentina.

The firm, which has its headquarters in Beaumaris, refused to comment.

Employees Michelle Humphreys and Linda Hughes, who both work at the Menai Bridge bakery, said the closure came as a "shock".
