Society Supports Local Town at Christmas

20 Rhagfyr 2018

Ongoing close relations between Builth Wells Town Council, the local community and the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society continue throughout the year, but especially at Christmas.

Each year, Builth Wells Town Council light up the streets with a wonderful display of Christmas lights in preparation for a busy week welcoming crowds from the highly anticipated Royal Welsh Winter Fair. The festive event is held every year at the end of November / start of December where crowds gather for one of the most prestigious primestock and traders events in the agricultural calendar. The town delivers a merry welcome, with quaint shops and cafes offering the best of Welsh produce, along with lights and a special festive feel.

It is with great pleasure that the Society is able to donate £500 towards the town’s festive displays and continue our close relationship with the local town and surrounding areas.

Steve Hughson, Chief Executive of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society said “The Royal Welsh is a vibrant part of the Mid Wales community and we are committed to supporting our local communities. Builth Wells makes a real effort to deliver that Christmas feel with fantastic town centre lights, which adds to our Winter Fair Christmas atmosphere.  We are very happy to support the town with a donation towards the cost and look forward to working together for the benefit of the area next year."

A cheque of £500 was presented to Builth Wells Town Council Deputy Mayor, Gwyn Davies, by the Chief Executive of the Society, Steve Hughson.

Builth Wells Town Deputy Mayor, Gwyn Davies said "It was a pleasure for me to receive a cheque from Mr Steve Hughson on behalf of the RWAS for Builth Wells Christmas lights. It is essential that Builth and the RWAS continue to support each other to guarantee the future success of both parties."
