The Rt Hon Simon Hart

August 4, 2020

The Rt Hon Simon Hart, Secretary of State for Wales popped into Montgomery accompanied by local MP Craig Williams. At very short notice I got an email from our Town Crier Sue Blower informing me of the visit and that she would be announcing the reason for the visit on the steps of the Town Hall at 7pm.
With 45 mins to get ready I asked for a quick brief and said I'd meet Sue there at 6.45pm.

Craig asked me if I could video the event which was fine but unexpected, without a gimble it stood to be a bit of a shaky shoot but with a decent fast lens it would not be so bad - unfortunately any photography would be minimal at best. But it was all for a good cause and I was keen to try and capture what I could.

This was all in aid of the new Eat Out - Help Out initiative launched by the UK Government to get people out and help kick start the economy with a 50% discount when you eat in at restaurants that are registered with the Eat out - Help Out Scheme. Both Simon and Craig later enjoyed a meal at The Dragon Hotel.
The video below is a short clip of the main speeches due to file size.
