HRH The Prince of Wales visits South Wales

26th February 2016

HRH meets school children on a visit to South Wales

The Prince of Wales visited South Wales today undertaking a wide range of engagements in the region. HRH’s first stop was to Stebonheath Primary School where he viewed a Welsh Water 'RainScape' -- a water catchment system which has been installed on the school's site. 

The system catches rainwater and slows down the speed at which it goes into sewer networks, helping to reduce sewer flooding and pollution. 

The Prince’s second stop was the Bridgend base of Airborne Systems, which designs and manufactures military parachutes and specialist aerial equipment, before visiting telecoms cable maker Prysmian in Aberdare to officially open the firm's new customer services centre.

The last stop for The Prince of Wales was to Llandovery Rugby Club, of which The Prince is Patron. HRH met the club's youth team as they took part in a practice session on the pitch. The community-owned club was established in 1881 and The Prince has been Patron of Llandovery Rugby Club since 2009.
