Opportunity to give the Welsh language a boost
in the community

A series of events are being held in Gwynedd communities next month to help individuals and community groups to be more confident in using the Welsh language in local activities.

 The sessions being held by Hunaniaith (Menter Iaith Gwynedd – Welsh language initiative) will include presentations by Menna Jones, Antur Waunfawr and Dylan Bryn Roberts from the Popdy Centre in Bangor, as well as an opportunity to share ideas and good practice. They will be suitable for community committees, halls, societies and any other interested party, and will look at ways of safeguarding the Welsh language.

Dafydd Iwan, Hunaniaith Chairman who will lead the sessions said: “The aim of these informal sessions is to share information and to discuss with individuals and community groups ways of giving them confidence to make the Welsh language central to local activities, and to find ways of bringing those learning the language to be part of such activities.”

The sessions will be held at:
- 02 February: Canolfan Henblas, Y Bala: 6-8 pm
- 09 February: Oriel Plas Glyn y Weddw, Llanbedrog: 2-4 pm
- 16 February: Antur Waunfawr: 6-8 pm
