Duckingham Palace opens at Parc Howard

QUACKTASTICK is the verdict of the ducks at Parc Howard as they get a new home and revamped pond thanks to the Parc Howard Association and Llanelli’s Men In Sheds.

The official opening took place today, Monday (Aug 24) as Nia Griffith MP and Cllr Rob James donned their duffle coats to brave the August cold weather joined by volunteers.

The ducks, though lively appeared happy with their new abode. The park had been closed for some time because of COVID-19 but thankfully it is business almost as usual for visitors.

Impressed by Palace visit: Nia Griffith MP and Cllr Rob James

Nia Griffith MP said:

“It was a real privilege this morning to celebrate the cleaning of the duck pond in Parc Howard, and to declare it and the duck house officially open. A huge thank you to the members of the Parc Howard Association who, under the guidance of David Bannister, took on the enormous task of cleaning the pond so clean that you can now see the bottom of it, and to Llanelli Men’s Shed for constructing a duckchouse so magnificent that it was nicknamed Duckingham Palace by Philip Thomas, Chair of the Parc Howard Association, who has overseen the project and opened the proceedings today. It is a real asset to Parc Howard, and I know we will all enjoy spending time there watching the ducks.”

Cllr James said:

“It’s truly fantastic to see the long awaited return of ducks in Parc Howard.
“As a member of the Parc Howard Association, I am proud of the fantastic work colleagues have being doing to clean up the area and I hope the local community appreciate all the effort that has gone into this.
“I cannot wait to see the completion of Phase 2 next.”
