The Countess of Wessex visits Forge Fach
On 19th March 2018 the Countess of Wessex visited Forge Fach Community Hub. The visit was to showcase the good community work of Forge Fach and to profie the range of services we offer to the Countess and key stakeholders.
As well as a great effort from staff and the people we support in Swansea, CEO Paul Snell, a team from the Walsingham Support London office and founder Mark Snell made the trip to Swansea. Thanks to all involved in the organisation, the visit was a great success and clearly showed how Forge Fach serves the community and it's wider audience.
"We were delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the range of community based activities taking place here at Forge Fach which benefit individuals of all abilities in and around Clydach. The Countess of Wessex met several of our activity groups and was pleased to have the opportunity to experience first hand the impact that these groups have on the lives on those involved. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and the opportunity to meet up and network with others who benefit from the opportunities offered through Forge Fach" Paul Snell, CEO Walsingham Support.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Royal Visit and it was a pleasure to show the Countess around the centre. The Countess was very approachable and very talkative, she enjoyed talking and playing with the children in The Forge Fach Nursery and The Play Library. It was a long day but very special and I will remember the day forever" Laura Campbell, Centre Volunteer.
" We are all very proud at Forge Fach to have been chosen to host a Royal Visit by the Countess of Wessex. The royal visit enabled Walsingham Support and Walsingham Community Solutions to showcase all the hard work that has been done by the staff up to date and to share its exciting plans for the future. The visit was attended by members of the local community, partner groups and local dignitaries. It was a special day that will be remembered by all involved for a very long time" Clare Bugler, Head of Walsingham Support Community Solutions.
