The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has once again made a donation to Builth Wells Town Council towards the Christmas lights in the town. Each year, the streets of Builth Wells are lit up with a wonderful display of Christmas lights in readiness for a busy week brought to the town by the Royal Welsh Winter Fair, typically held at the end of November. The colourful display gives a warm festive welcome to the thousands of Winter Fair visitors and the many people who live, work and pass through the town during the run-up to Christmas. As a mark of appreciation, the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society is delighted to contribute £350 to the Town Council to help towards the cost of maintaining, erecting and purchasing new lights. RWAS Chief Executive Aled Rhys Jones met with the Town Mayor, Councillor Mark Hammond, at the 2023 Winter Fair to officially present the cheque. Aled Rhys Jones, said: “Once again, I am delighted that can we support the Town Council with the Christmas lights in Builth. They add a splash of colour and festive cheer which is really appreciated by our Winter Fair and showground visitors.”. Builth Wells Mayor Cllr Mark Hammond, said: “Builth Wells has had close ties to the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society since it moved to its permanent home in Llanelwedd back in 1963, but even more so since it also began holding its Winter Fair in 1990.” "The donation from the Society is not only welcomed as it goes towards the maintenance of the lights, but is also a sign of an important partnership that goes towards helping local economies and ensuring that the heritage and culture of the town and rural communities are celebrated and kept relevant in the challenging times we currently live in."   For more information about the Winter Fair, visit the RWAS website.
