Following the news that Jay has been named the official Wizard of the Conwy Tournament, we were delighted to receive a letter of congratulations from Janet Finch-Saunders, Assembly Member for Aberconwy.
I am writing to congratulate you on being selected as the official Conwy Tournament Wizard by Conwy Chamber of Trade.
It must have been a fabulous surprise and you should be extremely proud of the fact that you were chosen, given the high number of applicants.
The Tournament sounds wonderful and it is fabulous to hear that you will be performing over the two day event, I am certain the crowds will be spell bound by your wizardry.
All that remains is for me to wish you every success for the event and best wishes for the future.
