WHAT A YEAR 2014!!!
This year has been exceptional for HAWFC. Our
current membership stands at over 900 since
we opened the doors in April 2012.
Our approach to fitness is simple. We provide
bespoke programmes on request to all our new
members which is both informative and structured to ensure their adaptation from commencing the programme to completion of the initial 610 weeks is both positive, and developmental.
So many success stories to include in this news
letter, but the stand out ones include, the Inclusion in several TV and National News Stories,
including the “One Show” with an audience of 5
Sports Wales, Community Strategy Website, and
many hours of coverage at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The Award of “Highly Commendable” from the
National Social Enterprise Awards is a privilege
we were honoured to receive.
Our Fund Raising has continued with our Annual
Splash for Cash in its 11th year, raising over
£700. We donated £500 to Help for Heroes and
£200 to Casey Jones MBE who travels to Africa
annually to help poor communities.
We have also sponsored the Holyhead Disability
Basketball Team with kit sponsorship. We are
proud of every one on the Team.
HAWFC have been a major sponsor for our very own Olympian Gareth Evans and were very proud of his performance at Glasgow and his subsequent qualification for the
World Seniors in November this year where we are hopeful
of a high finish and possible qualification for Rio 2016.

and participation at Glasgow 2014, She acquitted herself
very well and can look forward to building on her performance for the Gold Coast 2018.

We are very fortunate to have a great team at HAWFC, both Chris and
Luke have provided excellent advice and training to many groups and
individuals since they both gained placements at the centre and have
now been subsequently employed by HAWFC. Luke and Chris are also
both Level 1 Assistant Weightlifting Coaches. To Seth our new Instructor,
we wish him a great time with us and we will utilise his competency as a
Level 3 Personal Trainer to look at new initiative going forward.

HOLYHEAD AND ANGLESEYWEIGHTLIFTING AND FITNESS
We can advise on this area that hinders lots of Individuals’
progress. Current statistics paint a very poor picture of our
nations health and wellbeing. I would recommend that you
keep well away from the salespeople that sell products to
provide the miracle of weight loss. The simple lifestyle of
good healthy eating, correct portion sizes, no junk food between meals and correct hydration coupled with a structured
specific physical training plan is the only way that “long-term
weight management can be achieved” The onus is on YOU to
take charge of YOU!!. It can be a long road for some, but the
benefits once adaptation occurs are brilliant we have several
great examples at HAWFC, of people who have changed their
“Byron Jones lost over 35kg through consistent training and a healthy diet plan, and is
now a qualified gym instructor and will be

We are currently seeking funding partnerships with several agencies to provide a
“Front of House Reception” to include more toilet and shower facilities and a
physiotherapy room which is needed by our members. To date we have secured
£55,000 and are close to securing the remainder to make up the £105,000. It is
hoped that the new extension will be operational by March 2015.
Currently we conduct weekly sessions at Cemaes Bay (Memorial Hall 6.00pm
on Mondays), (Bodedern School 6.00pm on Tuesdays) and Wylfa 6.00pm on
Wednesdays), which are well attended. We will be extending this programme
across more communities of Ynys Mon over autumn and winter this year.

In a very short period of time the centre has been open its achievements have
been fantastic. We are rightly proud of HAWFC and its achievements both on
the sporting field of play and the life changing health and fitness benefits it is
providing for the Community of Ynys Mon.
We thank our partners Isle of Anglesey County Council, Mentor Mon, Sport
Wales, Wales Cooperative, WAG, Coleg Menai, and Arfon Dwyfor Training. The
support provided has been pivotal in the growth of this Social Enterprise and
more importantly providing a service to create a fitter healthier Anglesey.
