Save rural heritage, pleads Charles

By FWi staff

THE rural crisis is destroying traditional skills and driving young people from the countryside, warns Prince Charles.

The Prince made a heartfelt plea for more support for the countryside during a visit to a North Wales craft centre, reports the Daily Mail.

He said: “What they are doing here shows how important it is to preserve traditional skills for which there is a growing market.

“There is a real danger that people who have been born and bred here will be forced out because there will be no economic future.”

The Prince is a well-known champion of rural causes, most recently donating money to aid pig farmers hit by swine fever restrictions.
