“I am very much looking forward to meeting people from all over Flintshire,” said Elin Jones AM, Llywydd of the National Assembly for Wales.

“With more and more powers being devolved to Wales it is so important for people to be able to engage with and shape the work of the National Assembly.

“The mix of events we have planned will provide opportunities to learn about why the Assembly is important and how to contribute to and shape the issues we are discussing on your behalf.”

The Assembly’s education and outreach teams will be also visiting schools and groups across Flintshire throughout the week, holding workshops and advice sessions.

The week is part of the Assembly’s campaign to reach more people in their communities and listen to the issues they care about.
