Royal visit to Rhossili - 4th July 2006

This was no ordinary day in Rhossili. From the early part of the morning the Police presence had been highly visible and a buzz of excitement and expectation spread through the village capturing both residents and visitors alike.

Yesterday, after many hours of tireless work from the Rhossili Village Hall Committee and local residents in fundraising for the extension to the new Village Hall, the carpets were finally laid. (Incidentally we still need £20K to fit out the kitchen so if anyone has some spare pennies laying around....)

Their Royal Highnesses and their entourage arrived at Rhossili Village Hall at around 2pm escorted by six police on motorbikes. They were greeted by residents and visitors and children from Knelston school singing in Welsh.


They proceeded into Rhossili Village Hall where they met residents and members of organisations from Rhossili and around Gower; Rhossili Village Hall Committee, Rhossili Youth Club, local farmers, Rhossili Community Council, The Young Farmers, The Countryside Council for Wales, The Gower Society, The RNLI, and the Women’s Institute.


After signing the visitor’s book and unveiling a commemorative plaque they left the hall and again spoke with gathered onlookers before leaving to travel the short journey to St Mary’s Church in Rhossili. They then walked down to the National Trust shop to have a guided tour of the Vile before departing by helicopter.
