Cardigan now a university town following merger
CARDIGAN can now call itself a university town, following the historic merger of Coleg Ceredigion with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
In a special ceremony at the Guildhall, the university’s vice-chancellor, Prof Medwin Hughes, chair of the university council, Ven Randolph Thomas and Dr Brinley Jones, president of UWTSD officially welcomed Coleg Ceredigion to the UWTSD group.
Prof Hughes also presented the town with a citation naming Coleg Ceredigion as a constituent college of the university.
The Citation reads: “Gorau Awen Gwirionedd: To the Civic Leaders of the historic town of Cardigan, the University presents its greetings on the occasion of admitting Coleg Ceredigion into formal membership as a Constituent College of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
“In recognition of outstanding service, the university celebrates the distinctive contribution made by the College in promoting both Further and Higher Education within the region. It marks this historic event in the life of the College as it further develops new educational opportunities within the town of Cardigan and the County of Ceredigion.
“In witness, whereof, I subscribe my name as Vice-Chancellor of the University under the authority of our Royal Charter.”See this week's Cardigan & Newcastle Emlyn editions for the full story, in shops now or online by clicking the Digital Editions tab at the top of the page
