2020 will be Clwyd’s turn to be the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society Feature County
At the RWAS Council meeting in December, Clwyd was officially announced the Feature County for 2020, with both Harry Fetherstonhaugh and Lowri Lloyd Williams elected as President Elect and Ambassador Elect.
Harry who in 2016 started a joint venture with Rhys Williams and Emyr Jones farming Romney sheep at Coed Coch, has sat on the RWAS board for 30 years, and been involved with the Show for 40 years.
He added “ I am hugely honoured to have been elected President Elect for Clwyd’s Year in 2020. The whole ethos of the Royal Welsh is that it’s a team effort. I hope here brings a fun 2 years that Clwyd will be proud of.”
The Clwyd 2020 committee has already started to organise and plan fundraising events, chaired by Richard Tomlinson, with 3 area groups established to arrange fundraising across the Clwyd area.
It is anticipated that a variety of fundraising events will be taking place within the county over the next 22 months or so that will demonstrate the very best of Clwyd’s community spirit and at the same time prove to be thoroughly enjoyable and fun for all involved.
So far there has been frog and horse racing nights, a bingo with fish and chips night and a 60s/70s/80s night to kick-start the fundraising, with a clay pigeon shoot, various concerts and a weekend of activities at Ruthin Market being planned.
