Introduction to the LWA in Wales
LWA members who live in Wales are members of the Wales (Cymru) branch of the LWA, known as Gweithwyr y Tir (GyT) in Welsh. Alongside specific lobbying work and projects that take place on the branch level, LWA members also organise events, assemblies and celebrations on a Wales level. LWA Cymru members organise and attend farm tours, participate in farmer to farmer training, and build dynamic and supportive social networks of landworkers across Wales. Each year there is a big celebration that brings together LWA members across Wales, at which exciting discussions about the work and vision of the LWA take place.
LWA members in Wales keep in touch through a regular bi-lingual LWA Cymru newsletter, as well as through regional WhatsApp groups for West Wales, South Wales, Mid Wales and North Wales. We are looking to develop LWA member organising in each of these regions, and encourage members who have ideas and energy to chat with the LWA Membership team and the Cymru Organising Team about getting involved! Contact the member-led organising team at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Wales Membership Coordinator Amber at email@example.com to get involved in member organising, hear about what is happening in your area, or to join the regional WhatsApp groups.
