North Wales news and information

The return of the Llanrwst Rural Show has been hailed a success following two years away due to Covid-19.

Established some 140 years ago, the rural agricultural show promotes locally produced food and crafts.

The annual event is an important date in the agricultural calendar, attracting competitors from all over North Wales, but has sadly been missed over the past couple of years.

Janet Finch-Saunders, Senedd Member for Aberconwy, attended the Llanrwst show on Saturday and has praised the event.

She said: “Over the weekend I had a fantastic time attending the Llanrwst Agricultural show, meeting with constituents and industry experts form across Wales.

“The pandemic has previously prevented the show from running in normal fashion, as such, I am truly delighted to see such an impressive turn out this year, with many thousands in attendance.

“Highlighting how much this event has been dearly missed, the vibrant community effort to organise it was certainly felt.

“This year’s show had an outstanding horticultural display, included an outstanding dog show and pig race, to name just some of the activities and displays showcased during the day.

“Aberconwy and North Wales have fantastic farmers and producers, and to be able to celebrate their resurgence and continued success, at any given time, is a wonderful opportunity.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who participated in and organised this year’s show, their hard work and efforts made this day an undeniable success.”

Commenting further, she added: “It’s brilliant to be able to re-connect with many familiar faces following the past three years and discuss ways in which I can help the local community.

“I very much look forward to returning to the Llanrwst Show next year.”
