INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2018

SI Llandudno have established a regular Walk Along the Prom in Llandudno on the Saturday nearest to International Women’s Day [8th March] and Si Anglesey have joined in every year for the past few years.  This year was no exception and along with members from Clubs from the Region were other women’s organisations. 110 people stopped the traffic in Llandudno to raise awareness of International Women’s Day and 100 years since some women got the vote. Congratulations to SI Llandudno for the brilliant organisation of the event. Over 60 smiley face badges were handed out as well for the walk a mile with a smile campaign

REGIONAL MEETING 17th February 2018

Members of SI Anglesey attended the Cheshire, North Wales and Wirral Regional Meeting in Ellesmere Port.  President Michelle gave a presentation of some of the Programme Action Work Club is currently involved with. We are not sure if the earthquake experienced on the day was caused by the rousing applause for the work SI Anglesey and other clubs in the region showcased.
