The organisers of the annual St David’s Day Parade received a very welcome grant from Aberystwyth Town Council.
The grant of £900 – the biggest the Parade has yet been awarded – was warmly received.
“The organisers of Parêd Gwyl Dewi Aberystwyth are very grateful for this investment by Aberystwyth Town Council in the event. This is the biggest grant we’ve received and we understand that it will vary from year to year.
However, this money is an important part in extending the Parade to become more a festival to celebrate St David and Welsh culture. We know the money spent in the town due to the Parade’s activities is far greater than the £900 grant and so it’s a good investment in the town and also in Welsh culture.
We look forward to welcoming people into Aberystwyth to celebrate St David’s Day in 2016,” said Parêd chair, Siôn Jobbins.
