Twinning Weekend August 2016
Once again the Town of Llanwrtyd extended the hand of friendship and hosted a visit from our friends in Meriel and Cesky Krumlov.It was a fun packed weekend . After an arduous journey our French visitors arrived on Friday evening and had a restful evening with their hosts. Saturday was a whirlwind day which started with the Official Twinning Meeting. Representatives from Meriel , the Mayor, Monsieur Delannoy, and the Chief Executive of Cesky krumlov, Mr Rouce sharing ideas with the Llanwrtyd Twinning Committee representatives on how to strengthen ties for the future. It was a constructive and positive meeting with some new innovative ideas put forward. Meeting over, and the hosts and visitors got busy preparing for the annual Llanwrtyd Show with competitions for our French counterparts-who could make the best Bara Brith and take the best selfie? The afternoon was spent at the show and in the rain with a fun time had by all. The evenings activities saw tap dancing , exchanging of gifts , dancing and eating with a fantastic buffet provided by the Nueadd Arms.
Sunday was slightly calmer time with the hosts , a visit to the "Arts and Heritage Centre", a spot of lunch followed by a strawberry tea at the showground marquee. All too soon the fun was over and we were bidding farewell to out guests in the sure knowledge that we would be seeing them again soon and that in the meantime new friends had been made and old acquaintances renewed and revitalized.
