Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint celebrate Rhian Davies’ outstanding commitment and contribution to the communities of Flintshire.

Rhian Davies, Communications Officer of Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint (a body that creates and maximises the opportunities for people to live, learn and enjoy Welsh in Flintshire) was recently nominated for the FLCV (Flintshire Local Voluntary Council) Celebrating Volunteers Award. This award recognises the outstanding contribution of individuals through volunteering and working within the community in Flintshire.

Rhian, unknowing to her, was nominated and selected to receive the Celebrating Volunteers Award at their recent Annual Meeting. She was presented a certificate in recognition of her work.

Describing Rhian’s contribution, the Staff at Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint said:

“On top of her daily work with Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint, and all the work that is entailed raising two young energetic girls, Rhian, somehow manages to find the time and the energy to be a part of and contribute often to the local community through volunteering with a vast array of committees and organisations.

She’s a member of two of the voluntary committees for the Urdd National Eisteddfod held in Flintshire in 2016 (Fundraising Committee and the Dance Committee) and she has recently been working extremely hard organising the Eisteddfod yr Urdd Proclamation Day, held on the 3rd of October this year.

She is also the editor of the local papur bro, “Papur Fama”, dances (clog dancing in local festivals such as Gŵyl y Cadi Ha’ and supports local Urdd groups.

We are over the moon and delighted being able to celebrate and recognise her outstanding contribution.”
