Betty French Cuts the Ribbon
On Sunday the 17th of July, President Elizabeth French and Chair John Kirk welcomed members from near and far to unveil the refurbished exterior of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society Pavilion.
Attending were President- Elect Ifor Lloyd, Chief Executive Officer Rob Allen, trustees from the Society's Council and representatives from the overseas societies of Germany, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, the USA, Africa, South Africa, and Australia.
In a short ceremony Chair Kirk thanked all those who had contributed to the refurbishment and complemented the builders on their outstanding work. President French remarked on how refreshing it was to see the improvements, how appreciative the members who use the building will be, and cut the ribbon to great applause.

The Pavilion’s roof has been completely replaced, the exterior has been re-stained and decorated and new internal flooring has been installed.
Everyone is invited to come and see the Pavilion during this month’s Royal Welsh Show and we look forward to seeing you there.
