A FEW months ago my wife and I started going to Wilkinson’s café for our coffee when in Darlington. What a good move that was.

All the staff are extremely pleasant, very efficient and their levels of hygiene are second to none. I’m sure their motto is, if it doesn’t move, clean it. Very well done.

And an unrelated statistic. If all the rubber bands discarded by our Royal Mail deliverers were collected over a 7 day period in Darlington and joined they would circle the globe – twice!
