Meet Tracey Fitzpatrick & Amber Bell

The entrepreneurial spirit is strong in Tracey Fitzpatrick and Amber Bell, mother and daughter duo. As a teenager, Tracey worked in her mother’s cafe, fostering those early business-savy beginnings.

Amber's husband and his family grew up in Tumbler Ridge. Amber moved up to Tumbler Ridge with him and together they started their family. In pursuit of her dream of owning a restaurant, Tracey moved up to Tumbler Ridge from the lower mainland to start Action Play Cafe and to be closer to her daughter Amber and her beloved grand-kids.

Tumbler Ridge has rooted for Tracey's and Amber’s success. To show their appreciation, the Action Play Cafe owners find joy in giving back. Servicing Meals on Wheels once a week is one of many ways they support their community, along with local fundraisers and events. Sharing the love and support is what Tumbler Ridge is all about.

“Everyone looks out for each other and my children are safe here,” remarks Amber. “It takes a village and a village we have!”

Amber and her family like to get out and explore the wild outdoors as often as possible. She highly recommends checking out one of the many waterfalls surrounding Tumbler Ridge. Especially captivating for her is the outstanding geological heritage the area possesses. “We live in a Global Geopark! I sometimes call Action Play Cafe the ‘Gem of the Geo’.”
