Gwynedd baker restarts his oven because he couldn't slice retirement

A month ago 74-year-old Selwyn Morris celebrated the end of an era - closing the bakery he started with his two brothers back in 1966.

The Morris Bros bakery in Cwm-y-Glo, near Caernarfon shut its doors after 52 years - to the dismay of customers.

But after two weeks he started to get bored and within a month he was missing baking so much he decided to spark up the ovens again.

The bakery re-opened on Friday with customers queueing up to buy their bread.

Selwyn's daughter Julie Roberts said: "He was really looking forward to retiring and thought he would really enjoy it.

"But after two weeks he started to get bored at home and within three he was really missing the place and customers, after four weeks he decided to come back.

"He didn't realise quite how much he would miss it, all the customers, all the talks everyday in the bakery.

"The other part was people in the village who kept telling us they were missing our bread. It is back by popular demand!"

Selwyn originally started the business with brothers Alwyn and Dafydd - supplying their own shops in the village, Llanberis and Caernarfon as well dozens of homes and stores across Anglesey and Gwynedd.

Selwyn was last brother working in the business, alongside daughter Wendy, who had been there 35 years.

While Selwyn is coming out of retirement he will not go back full time with the bakery restricted to three days a week, and only the Cwm-y-Glo site re-opening.

Julie added: "We are opening Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings so dad will get the weekends off, this will keep him busy enough that he won't get bored!"
