Join The FSA

Catch up with the FSF in the NW

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The next meeting of the North West and North Wales Division of the FSF takes place on Sunday, January 18 2009, 1pm start (buffet at 12.30pm) at the Llay Miners Welfare Institute, The Ring, Llay, Nr Wrexham, LL12 0TH.
At November’s meeting the division discussed Gam£ 39, football and the credit crunch, atmosphere and standing, policing and stewarding, and Team GB. New financial systems within the FSF were also discussed. These allow divisions their own kitty, meaning they can campaign on issue which matter to them.

While the FSF has always made campaign funds available to divisions they can now be accessed far quicker, so if something in your area kicks off, you can get cracking straight away. Whether this involves materials, attending meetings, or organising demonstrations, well, that’s up to you.

The FSF welcomes members and non-members alike to divisional meetings, we’re always pleased to see new faces along. For future updates on FSF divisional meetings sign up to our newsletter (see left), or email your divisional contact (see left, click on drop down menu).
