That Was The Week That Was (In Photos)

It's been a busy week as County Council Chairman. A very busy week.

Attending the Bwcabus '2'
Launch in Lampeter.

Thanking Prince Charles for his visit to
Aberystwyth where he met with victims
of the recent floods.

The Bwcabus '2' launch in Lampeter at Monday lunchtime with Welsh Government Minister Carl Sargeant AM was followed by a special visit by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to Ceredigion where they met flood victims in the Council's Canolfan Rheidol offices later that afternoon.

Helping Launch Ceredigion County Council's
Local Mortgage Scheme with 
Lloyds TSB in Aberystwyth
This was followed by the launch of Ceredigion County Council's Local Authority Mortgage Scheme at Aberystwyth's Lloyds TSB on Tuesday and another meeting with the Royal couple in Aberaeron on Wednesday. All this whilst attending 4 Aberystwyth University graduation ceremonies from Tuesday-Thursday & a Lampeter University graduation ceremony on Friday after their Honorary Fellows Feast on Thursday evening.

Attending the Aberystwyth University
Graduation Ceremony with the
Head of Geography, Prof. Mike Woods.
Tuesday was particulary busy as I had the pleasure of being accompanied around by a work experience placement, Leah Williams from Dyffryn Teifi, for the day. A birthday meal with Alyson last night was followed today by Gloria Rees' funeral in Penparc before an afternoon at the Cardigan Castle open day.

I'm looking forward to a quiet Sunday tomorrow but can look back on what was a frenetic but very productive week. The highlight? Easily the many graduation ceremonies that I attended in Aberystwyth and Lampeter - it was great to be in such a positive, happy environment and as a former Aberystwyth graduate myself, I could well appreciate the emotions experienced by those students who were closing a significant chapter of their lives and beginning a new one.

Well done to them all and best wishes for their futures.
