Like everyone else in Radyr and Morganstown, the Community Council today heard the sad news that the Duke of Edinburgh has passed away.
We know that the thoughts of many who live in Radyr and Morganstown will be with the Queen and her family.
It is quite likely that a number of residents will have met Prince Philip during his many visits to Wales. We would like to hear from those who did - and we would be pleased to collect your stories on a special page on our website.
Indeed, our current Chair, Cllr Huw Onllwyn Jones, met the Duke during a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award lunch at Cardiff City Hall:
’I was invited to the event...’ explains Huw.
‘I assumed that there would be a few hundred people present - so I was hugely surprised to find that I was one of just eight people sitting down to lunch. It was a very convivial affair. The Duke of Edinburgh was very charming and entertaining - with a good number of positive stories to share about his award scheme. I was glad to be able to tell him how my own daughter had benefited from the scheme. It was fascinating to spend a couple of hours in his company - and I will always remember that day’.
