Not only are we celebrating our 90th anniversary, this year, but also our return to the Royal Welsh Show, after an absence of 12 years!
A busy and successful four days culminated in the cutting of our 'birthday' cake by Jules Hudson, best known for his appearances on Countryfile and Escape to the Country, and our Operations Manager, Carys.
Speaking at the event, Jules said,
"They probably never thought, 90 years ago, that this day would come and that it [CPRW] would still be going; maybe they’d hoped it wouldn’t need to happen. Maybe they’d hoped that actually, enough conservation measures would be put in place, such that we wouldn’t have to fight for these things, but the truth is that we do, because the landscape itself doesn’t have a voice, but it does through CPRW, and similar organisations."
Watch this space for our return to the Royal Welsh next year. Hope to see you there!
