BARGOED is getting ready to give the 1st Battalion Royal Welsh a warm welcome when they parade through the town at 12pm this Saturday.
Traders and homeowners in the newly regenerated town have been busy dressing their shops, homes and streets in anticipation of the parade, which marks the third anniversary of the regiment being granted the Freedom of the county borough.
Around 120 members of the regiment - colours flying, bayonets fixed and drums beating – will parade from St Gwladys car park along High Street, Hanbury Road and on to Bargoed Square for an official ceremony. The regiment will then march along Gilfach Street before coming to a halt at the Capel pub junction.
Mayor of Caerphilly county borough Cllr Michael Gray, said, “Excitement is really building ahead of the parade this Saturday. I hope that residents from across the county borough can join us in Bargoed to pay tribute to the brave men and women of the 1st Battalion Royal Welsh.”
