Olympic champion toasts new FUW offices with milk

OLYMPIC gold medalist, taekwondo athlete Jade Jones, will use milk for a celebratory toast when she officially opens the Farmers' Union of Wales new offices in Mold at 4pm on Monday (November 5).

A local girl from Flint, Jade is one of the latest personalities to front the UK nationwide "make mine Milk" campaign. She said: “Milk is a really important part of my diet and I'm looking forward to toasting the long-term success of the FUW's new premises.

"At the London Olympics I had to be in the best shape of my life and having milk every day played a part in that. You don’t need to be an athlete to enjoy the benefits of milk though - it’s low in fat, healthy, tasty and has its place in everyone’s diet.”

The FUW's new offices at 23A Chester Street is larger than the two-room premises in the same street the union previously used for nearly 30 years. Refreshments to be served during the opening ceremony will include milk-based drinks.

FUW Flint county chairman Clwyd Spencer said: "The new offices have ample space for FUW Insurance Services plus the county office requirements and will be equally convenient for the town's auction mart.

"They are much more fit for purpose and, being on street level, are easier to access and, hopefully, more prominent for passing trade. They will include an office for the county executive officer and a room spacious enough for our usual county meetings."

The new offices will be open five days a week and manned by three staff - office administrator Sarah Ross and area officers Elwyn Davies and Natasha Lewis.

"It means there will always be someone there to meet and advise members of their various insurance requirements and all the other members' services the union can offer," Mr Spencer added.
