Flintshire’s remarkable women’ recognised by Delyn AM

Hannah Blythyn AM for Delyn has recognised the vital contribution women make across Flintshire during a debate in the National Assembly.

Hannah Blythyn AM said:

“I took time in the National Assembly to pay tribute to the remarkable women who are making a difference in a variety of ways across my constituency of Delyn and Flintshire.”

“These fabulous women rarely make the headlines, but are often the beating heart of our local communities. They do things – not for recognition or reward – but simply because it’s the right thing to do”

In her speech, Hannah Blythyn AM acknowledged the positive influence of local women, including:
