Prince of Wales visits Machynlleth to mark 50 years of investiture

HRH Prince Charles has marked fifty years as Prince of Wales with a visit to Machynlleth.


Greeted by guests including the Lord-Lieutenant of Powys, Mrs Tia Jones, and Member of Parliament, Glyn Davies, the visit has been described as "fantastic for the town" by the local Assembly Member for Montgomeryshire, Russell George.


Following the visit, Mr George, who was among the guests to welcome the Prince of Wales to Machynlleth on Friday 5th July, said:


"I was delighted to be among the hundreds of local people to welcome the Prince of Wales to Machynlleth to mark the 50th anniversary of his investiture at the conclusion of His Royal Highness' Annual Summer Tour of Wales.


"Such a high profile visit from the heir to the throne is fantastic for the town of Machynlleth especially given His Royal Highness' support for so many charities and organisations throughout Wales and I was particularly pleased he took time out to speak to representatives from local good causes at Y Plas.


"We all enjoyed the music from the brass band and the traditional Welsh singing which was provided by school children of Ysgol Carno, Ysgol Llanbrynmair and Ysgol Glantwymyn.


"All in all a memorable occasion for the people and children of Machynlleth and we look forward to welcoming Prince Charles back to Montgomeryshire in the near future."
