Assembly will encourage public to have their say at Green Light Festival

29 June 2011

The National Assembly for Wales will be at Wrexham’s Green Light Festival on Friday, 1 July 2011.

Staff will be on hand to encourage visitors to have their say in the Assembly’s work and propose ideas on what environmental issues they would like the Assembly to discuss.

The festival will be held at Queen’s Square, Wrexham and the leader of the Council and the Mayor of Wrexham will officially open the festival at 10am.

Its purpose will be to share with the public the importance of environmental education for children and young people of all ages.

“The ‘yes’ vote in the March referendum means that more of the decisions affecting the people of Wales are made in Wales,” said the National Assembly’s Presiding Officer, Rosemary Butler AM.

“Therefore it’s more important than ever for those decisions to be made with the knowledge and opinions of Welsh people.”

“That is why we have made Assembly of Communities a key theme of the new Assembly and I would urge any visitors to Wrexham’s Green Light Festival Show to go along and find out how they are represented and how they can get involved.”

North Wales regional AM Mark Isherwood and Member for Wrexham Lesley Griffiths will be meeting visitors to the National Assembly bus at 10.00am and 10.30am respectively.
