Welsh Fencing are pleased to announce that we have commissioned a further Emergency First Aid at Work Course; this will run in Cardiff on Saturday 18th March, 2017. The course will be run by the British Red Cross.
This course is provided at no charge to Welsh-affiliated members. Places will be limited, and will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference being given to current active Welsh Fencing Coaches.
Please submit your application to the Honorary Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The course will be held in the Bute Suite, and will run from 9:30am-5pm.
I regret to report that, following a scheduling mistake by me, we will need to postpone the Open Forum. We will re-schedule as soon as we can, and will advise of the new date. My apologies!
I am pleased to report that we have scheduled an Open Forum event for Saturday, 18th March, at 6pm. The venue will be the Sport Wales National Centre, Cardiff. The meeting will be in the Bute Suite.
This is an opportunity for you to meet the Board and for us to meet you; and for you to raise any questions you may have; its also an opportunity for you to propose ideas or suggestions.
This will not be a formal event, so please take the opportunity to come along and meet us.
