CARDIGAN Town councillors stood in a minute’s silence to pay their respects to long-time council member and former mayor Llwyd Edwards.

Mr Edwards, from Penparc, was a well-known and respected figure in the town and died on June 15 aged 79. His funeral took place a week later at Glanrhyd Chapel.

Current mayor of Cardigan, Cllr John Adams, said: “Llwyd was a faithful town councillor for more than 30 years and I had the honour of working with him since 1991.

“He was mayor twice and chair of the board of governors at the secondary school.

“We will miss his humour and strength, especially in those matters relating to planning as he was a very experienced architect. Not many people have served their area as Llwyd did for nearly 40 years.”
