Region Meeting On Saturday 21 May 2022, the Regional Meeting was held at The Imperial Hotel Llandudno. The theme of the meeting was climate change and the first speaker was James Espley, waste manager of Conwy County Borough Council who explained what happens to our recycling. The second speaker was Clare Nasir, a meteorologist at the BBC who has also been a weather presenter on GMTV. She gave an interesting presentation on how climate change is affecting the weather.

Cheques for £725 were presented to each chosen charity by Regional President Yvonne Johns and were very well received by representatives of the three charities: Please click here for photos and report of the day written by Esther Roberts, Region
