National Assembly for Wales heads to Flintshire
People will be able to learn more about and get involved with the work of the National Assembly for Wales when it comes to Flintshire between 13-17 November.
The programme of events will include school visits, community and youth group workshops, question and answer sessions, a meeting of the Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee and even a market stall.
The week gets underway on Monday with Deputy Presiding Officer Ann Jones AM talking about her journey into politics with representatives from Girl Up: Cariad at Alun School in Mold. Girl Up is a United Nations initiative to empower adolescent girls around the globe.
A panel discussion about women's role in civic society will take place at Flint Town Hall and will include Ann Jones and Assembly Member for Delyn, Hannah Blythyn.
On Wednesday the National Assembly will be at Mold Town Market with information about local Assembly Members, the Assembly's work and how people can get involved.
On Thursday the Culture, Welsh Language and Communication Committee will meet at Theatr Clywd and continue an inquiry into non-public funding of the arts. Arts organisations and crafts groups from the area have been invited to contribute.
Local students will be invited to ask questions of Assembly Members in a Life in Politics session following the committee meeting.
Also on Thursday, a youth theatre group, Company 25, will stage a performance around the theme of democracy at Theatr Clywd.
"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.
Previously the Assembly has visited Wrexham, Swansea and Newport.
