On the Saturday night, in the Fishers Hotel, the new president, Mr. Simon Allen, received the chain of office from the retiring president, Sir Eric Howells. In his president's address, Mr. Allen said that to him Whitland Week epitomises Whitland - a town that calls everyone back to their roots and welcomes friends, both old and new to share in the pleasure of Parc Dr. Owen. He also thanked all sponsors, especially Davies Builders Merchants (for being the main sponsors of the Golf Open Competition and of the carnival) and everyone else who has given their time freely without question.
