Hereford & Herefordshire

WELCOME TO

the Herefordshire branch

of the English-Speaking Union

As a member of the ESU you can take part in our social, educational and cultural programmes and attend events both in the UK and abroad. Local fundraisers and competition heats will enable you to support young people in your community.

As a UK member you receive a number of further benefits. These include priority access to Dartmouth House, our beautiful London Headquarters, regular e-news updates, a copy of our Members’ magazine and invitations to special events.

This branch is particularly enthusiastic and active in encouraging local schools’ participation in the UK Public Speaking Competition and the Schools' Mace.

I look forward to welcoming you into the ESU family!

Herefordshire

Meet the Chairman

The ESU Herefordshire Branch bids you a warm welcome. We are only a few in number, but I and my helpers care very deeply about encouraging young people to develop the confidence to express themselves in public. As a former Member of Parliament, the importance of this was brought home to me when I first sought election – during my education very little attention was formally paid to this vital aspect! As a result, I am determined to do what we can to help young people in this respect.

We are particularly proud of our participation in the UK Public Speaking Competition and the Schools' Mace. I am delighted with the achievements of our participating schools and in particular, the individual successes at regional level against stiff competition.

We would very much like to build on these successes and will welcome new members who share our passion – as well as the wider aspirations of the ESU.
