Visit of Prince Charles to Llandovery Station.

posted Jul 7, 2018, 3:47 AM by Llandovery MRC   [ updated Jul 8, 2018, 8:48 AM ]

As part of the Heart of Wales 150th Anniversary celebrations Prince Charles visited the station on 4th July 2018. He met with the volunteer staff who run the cafe and also had a guided tour of four layouts in the cafe. He then went across the crossing to be sung to by the local junior school and to admire their efforts in the vegetable garden. He then caught the up train to continue his day out. Janet  became our official photographer for the day.
