We are fortunate to have many wonderful staff working with us in our three restaurants and at our prep-kitchen. They’re multi-talented, highly motivated, and passionate. We want to celebrate all that they bring to our restaurants, and everything they do outside them. These are their stories.
Hi I’m Kelsey!
I am a part-time waitress at Dylan’s Restaurant in Menai Bridge, and I’m also currently in my second year of studying for a degree in Policing at Llandrillo College. The degree course draws on the academic disciplines of criminology and law, it focuses on key policing professional values and operational competences.
Alongside studying at Llandrillo Colege and working at Dylan’s, I’m a Special Constable for North Wales Police. I have been an operational Special Constable since May 2018. For those that don’t know, a Special Constable is a volunteer police officer - we have the same powers, uniform and ranks as a regular police officer – there’s no difference in respect or job satisfaction!
I have constant support from all of the staff at Dylan’s with what I do as a Special Constable.
Since working at Dylan’s I have gained life-long friends, continuously developed my customer service and communication skills, alongside my own confidence. I am extremely grateful for all of the staff and management at Dylan’s as I would not have been able to take part in all of the opportunities with the police as a Special Constable without their help in scheduling my restaurant shifts, or accommodating my studies.
I wanted to challenge myself and make a real difference to the community, and Joining the Special Constabulary has changed my life.
I have attended many different jobs that I would never imagine a Special Constable would do. I have worked in events such as The Anglesey Show, Festival No6, Conwy food festival and Freshers Week in Bangor.
Being a Special has further developed my self-confidence/skills and getting that satisfactory feeling of knowing that you have helped or made a real difference to somebody today makes me proud of what I do.
Helping the community is a rewarding feeling and this is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
You might see me in uniform out on patrol in the local area, or working at Dylan’s restaurant Menai Bridge in a different uniform completely! Whichever it is, do come and say ‘Hi’.
