This blog post is the latest part of our Winter ‘Go Full Circle’ campaign, which is promoting the role of – and encouraging consumers to support - Welsh social enterprises, co-operatives and other community organisations in the run-up to Christmas.
Many thanks to Marc Jones of the Saith Seren community pub in Wrexham, for providing us with a contribution to the Winter 2013 Go Full Circle campaign:
Christmas is Saith Seren's busiest time of the year as we approach our second birthday as a community cooperative pub and Welsh Centre for the Wrecsam area.
As a well-known venue for live music in the town centre, our weekends are always busy but the Christmas season also means our festive menu will be in demand - we already have more than 180 Christmas dinners booked.
The Centre's offices and rooms for hire are now becoming very popular with community groups and voluntary organisations wishing to meet in a convenient, refurbished town-centre location and we host a series of Welsh-language classes for all levels of learners. We're also home to the Cylch Ti a Fi toddlers' groups and the local Menter Iaith Maelor.
The building we took over has now been transformed from a disused pub that had lain idle for a year into a thriving hub of community activity and entertainment.

The organisation featured in this blog post is just one of many that you can support. Many more can be found on our Go Full Circle directory. Happy Christmas and ‘buy social’
