HRH Prince Charles visit to St. Michael’s Church Cilycwm.

HRH. Prince Charles made a scheduled visit to St. Michael’s Church Cilycwm, last Friday, on 24/2/17.
On his arrival he was met by two of Cilycwm’s community leaders, the Rev. Ann Mc Knight and County Councillor Dafydd Tomos, representing the Cilycwm Ward.

The Prince of Wales was invited by the Rev. Ann Mc Knight, to enter the church grounds where he visited the ancient yew trees surrounding the church.

Afterwards, he entered the church through the side door where he was introduced to representatives of the local organisations around the village. The Prince eagerly met and chatted with all gathered in the church.

Côr Cyswllt of Cilycwm provided a few songs from their repertoire, where he met the choir’s conductor Aled Edwards. Aled with his wife Eleri are quite unique in singing circles as being the only married couple that have won the coveted Blue Riband, where they both showed their awards to the Prince.

Tea and refreshments were provided by the lady members of the church and community. Others with businesses in the locality showed their products.
Afterwards the Prince left the church and having asked some of the well-wishers on his way in if there was a pub in the locality. He capitalised on this information to do a sharp detour and was greeted by the Neuadd Arms landlords, John and Sandra Hughes. They invited the Prince in to sample some of their brews.

The Prince left suitably impressed at approx’ 4pm, having commented on the beautiful hillsides and scenery on entering the village as well as the hospitality he’d received from a diverse range of people whom he’d been introduced to.

(With a member of Clarence House was legendary Fleet Street photographer and commentator, Arthur Edwards MBE, covering the Prince’s visit as he’d done before with past royal tours over several decades.)
