On Thursday 28th January, I invited constituents from Stephenson Court in Plasnewydd to the National Assembly for Wales. It was great to be able to show members of my constituency around the Assembly and to also have a guided tour by the National Assembly for Wales
I was able to take my visitors, Fran, Joan, Theresa, Monty and Steve, to the Big Lottery event which was being held at the Assembly. We learnt about the Big Lottery Fund's priorities for the New year and how constituents could access the funding. In addition, we enjoyed some great cakes, baked by Lea's mum (in photo) and learned of Lea and her family's involvement with the Big Lottery.
You can visit the National Assembly for Wales whenever you like. The Senedd is not just a building for Members, it is your building. It is the main public building of the National Assembly, the main centre for democracy and devolution in Wales. It is an open building – a building into which you can walk, have a cup of coffee in the Oriel on the upper level, and go into the public galleries from the Neuadd on the centre level. And it is not just visitors that come here to see and enjoy the Senedd – we have also had performers, singers, exhibitions and all sorts of activities going on here, because it is a public building.
If you would like to visit the Assembly and have a guided tour, or a sear in Plenary meetings, please visit the Welsh Assembly website at :
