A HOME-coming parade for Welsh Guards takes place in Ystradgynlais on Thursday. (Jan 31) 

The guards will gather at the Welfare Hall in Ystradgynlais at 12.30pm, before marching through the town and stopping for inspection.  The Band of the Welsh Guards will lead the Company into the town.

Powys Council chairwoman Susan McNicholas, the Lord Lieutenant of Powys, the Hon Mrs Shan Legge-Bourke and Welsh Guards Regimental Adjutant Col Tom Bonas will inspect the parade, followed by a blessing from the Bishop of Swansea, the Right Reverend John Davies.

The Company and Band would then continue to march through the town before returning back to the Welfare Hall.

As a result of the march, Ystradgynlais Cross bus stop will be relocated for the day. 

Local bus services that use the stop will be relocated to the Ynyscedwyn Arms Hotel, between 8am and 3pm.It will affect the X63, X64 and 62 services.
X63 and X64 services - coming in from Brecon will omit Penrhos and travel down to Heol Giedd, turning left and exiting the same way back to the A4067.The 62 service buses will serve the Penrhos estate, returning to the A4067 at Caer Lan roundabout and then via the Heol Giedd.

Buses heading up from Swansea will operate in reverse.

The alternative route for Powys contracted buses (X63 and X64) going to Swansea/Neath will then be down the A4067 to Pontardawe, then the A474 into Neath.

    What i'd like to know is how much does the marching up and down all over the place cost. We hear so much about deference budget being overspent, it seems the top brass hasn't got the message yet
