Councillor Davies then headed to the St George's for a tour and to meet the teachers and pupils.

The High Sheriff then met volunteers at Clun Memorial Hall and presented the hall community with a High Sheriff award.

"The committee has worked so hard pushing forward with new ideas following the shut down in the pandemic," Councillor Davies said.

He said Clun may be one of the smallest towns in the UK but has a big community spirit.

"We have lots of people in lots of different organisations who do things voluntarily and this was a way of the town council saying thank you."

"It was a great morning and the High Sheriff was impressed by the number of organisations we have here in Clun."

The High Sheriff took on her role, which runs for 12 months, in April last year.
