Castle is ‘outstanding achievement’
Cardigan Castle celebrated its first anniversary of re-opening with a cake cutting ceremony by the High Sheriff of Dyfed Prof Medwin Hughes.
Prof Hughes said the castle was “an outstanding achievement” and praised the work of everyone involved with the 15-year long campaign of restoration and re-opening.
He added it was an important place for tourism, the economy and heritage in Cardigan.
Prof Hughes presented a framed certificate to Cadwgan Trust which states: “The Shrievalty of Dyfed wishes to congratulate the Cadwgan Trust on celebrating a year since the re-opening of Cardigan Castle. The castle’s historic contribution to the life of Wales and its importance in promoting the tourism, economy and culture of the region is recognised.”
The event, in the castle tower room, was attended by staff, trustees and volunteers.
