Local Senedd Member Paul Davies has joined Senedd colleagues to attend the official launch of the Royal Welsh Show 2023. The Royal Welsh Show is a four-day agricultural show which hosts a series of livestock and equine competitions as well as Welsh food and drink displays, craft exhibitions and trade stands. Members joined those representing rural organisations and groups to hear more about the programme for this year’s Show and the Senedd’s Presiding Officer and the Minister for Rural Affairs also gave speeches on the importance of the Show as a cultural and economic asset.
Mr Davies said, “The Royal Welsh Show is the pinnacle in Wales’ agricultural calendar, and it was great to join Senedd Members from across the political spectrum for the official launch of this year’s Show. I’m looking forward to attending the Show myself and I hope to see many people from across Pembrokeshire at the event.
“Of course, in August we’ll also have the Pembrokeshire County Show which is another great opportunity for people to come together to watch displays, take part in competitions and celebrate Pembrokeshire’s outstanding food and drink. We must remember that Shows like the Royal Welsh and the Pembrokeshire County Show rely heavily on the support of so many volunteers, who give up their free time to make these events happen - and so I pay tribute to their commitment and hard work in putting together these events and I look forward to attending both of them again this year.”
