Remembering the past, securing the future
Humbled to have delivered the PR for this important event at Parc Stormy, Stormy Down in Bridgend.
Those who trained at the former WWII aerodrome were honored in a ceremony attended by some 500 people including veterans and local dignitaries. And whilst the media coverage achieved – ITV news, BBC, Western Mail – was expansive, the opportunity to meet 94 year-old Ray Taylor from the Rhondda was even more rewarding.
This delightful man was a rear gunner in a Halifax bomber and took part in 48 missions, including flights of some 10 hours to Vienna, at a time when over half of RAF aircrew were killed on operations.
With Parc Stormy now owned by our client Cenin, a renewable technologies specialist that has created a cluster of pioneering energy businesses, it is a story of honouring our past while securing our future.
