Gareth Edwards was joined by officials from Carmarthenshire County Council and the local business community, plus current Welsh rugby stars Robert Sidoli and Jamie Robinson who signed mini-rugby balls and entertained the crowds with a rugby skills workshop throughout the day. The official opening was just part of a Very Welsh Weekend organised by Nolan uPVC to celebrate its new Johnstown site.
St David's Day activities included gardening demonstrations by S4C presenter Helen Scutt, music from harpist Carys Ann Evans, a series of stunning performances by the Carmarthen Youth Opera and free welsh cakes.
"We wanted to create an opportunity to thank all those people who have supported the growth of our business," said founding managing director, Nolan Nicholas. "Having set up here in Carmarthen 20 years ago, we see ourselves as an integral part of the West Wales community and deliberately chose St David's Day weekend for our celebrations. I'm also delighted to announce that over the course of the weekend we raised £735 for the Ty Bryngwyn Hospice in Llanelli."
