Past WUS Meetings

The society now organises only one meeting each year, at a central location, to facilitate regular attendance by both North and South Wales members.

The meetings now include the WUS Business meeting, a training afternoon with presentation and debates, a trade exhibition with supper, invited guest speakers, and the award of the Huw Williams Prize for the best presentation.

The venue is now the Hotel Metropole, Temple Street, Llandrindod Wells LD1 5DY
