The Senedd, Cardiff Bay

Roadshow on the Road to Success.


Launch, Senedd, Cardiff Bay, 29th January 2008.


The Launch, and first Roadshow, took place on the 29th January at  the Senedd and was officially launched by Jane Hutt AM. We had so many people attending that I failed to get a definitive number but I think around 120 people  came along - including Jenny Cuthbert, the mother of Jeff Cuthbert AM, who brought along papers and photographs from her aunt, Annie Hambley about her time in the Independent Labour Party and lots of photos of the women working  in the soup kitchens. Many deposits were made and an exhausting but exhilarating time was had by all. The event was well covered by the media, including English and Welsh news items, and an appearance on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour by Archive President Emeritus Professor Deirdre Beddoe and Development Worker Sue Hamill.
