2019 National Eisteddfod of Wales

WI stand at the National Eisteddfod

We had a wonderful week at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Llanrwst from 3 to 10 August 2019.

The WI stand, hosted by Clwyd Denbigh Federation of WIs, was based on the theme Nooks / Cilfachau with the focal point comprising of a large tree displaying handcrafted small animals made by members.

On display were eye-catching promotional panels showcasing the diverse range of opportunities offered to women through membership of the WI, from campaigning and participating in sport and leisure activities, to learning and developing new skills.

Also on display were craft panels, designed by Clwyd Denbigh Federation, promoting the contribution of the WI towards achieving sustainable development.

On 5 August, a session was held on the stand to promote the WI’s new on-line Welsh language course developed by the National Centre for Learning Welsh. The course will be played on the stand throughout the week.
