Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Company will be at 10:00 am on Sunday 27th November, 2016, at the Sport Wales National Centre, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, CF11 9SW (Bute Suite 1).

It is our intention to collect the various Welsh fencing trophies so that they can be assessed for insurance purposes, and also repaired where necessary.
In the first instance, if you currently have one of our trophies, please could you drop me an email to confirm what you have.
BFA has launched a new membership scheme (http://britishfencing.com/membership/new_membership_scheme/), which introduces a new range of membership categories. This will have an impact on our youth fencing community as different categories of membership will have access to different types of event.
In order to provide a coherent pathway, the Board has decided the following categorisation of youth events in Wales will apply from the start of the 2016/2017 season:
We therefore invite coaches, clubs and fencers to respond to this by proposing ideas of how this new series of events could be structured, organised and run. Welsh Fencing will support this by provision of facilites and equipment at the Sport National Centre, Sophia Gardens, and by registering the events with BFA. Please ensure you review the definitions provided by BFA when you are developing these ideas, as BFA have outlined a clear set of characteristics of recreational events.
Please send your ideas direct to the Chairman, at email@example.com
