Montgomeryshire Day was 'shining success'

The sun shone and the welcome was warm for food and drink exhibitors who took part in Montgomeryshire Day hosted by local MP Glyn Davies in the Jubilee Room at the House of Commons on Wednesday (June 10).
Farmers' Union of Wales' Montgomeryshire county branch helped co-ordinate the event, together with Mr Davies and his staff, to show off some of the unique features of his constituency.
It allowed organisations and small producers the opportunity to display their products and bring Montgomeryshire to the attention of several MPs, peers and their staff in London.
FUW Montgomeryshire's newly-elected county chairman Mark Williams said: “The response to the day was amazing with exhibitors having to answer numerous questions about their work and the products they produced.”
Visitors to the Jubilee room were able to sample speciality cakes and biscuits from Doodlebakes, sausages and speciality ham from Neuaddfach Baconry, washed down with local beverages from Monty’s Brewery, Berriew Cider, Montgomeryshire Spring Water and Kerry Vale Vineyard.
Tourism also played a central role with Montgomeryshire’s recreation, landscape and variety of accommodation - ranging from a tipi campsite to farmhouse accommodation to luxurious lodges - highlighted.
"The highly successful event showed Montgomeryshire has a lot to offer and many ‘hidden gems’ to discover on any visit to Wales," Mr Williams added.
