I’ve been promising myself and various passers by for ages that we will have a meet-up in Llandysul, and have not found a sensible time to have it. Until now…
On the first Sunday morning of every month, there is a table top sale in Calon Tysul (The Leisure Centre), Heol Llyn y Fran, Llandysul, from 10 til 1. I will be there for the whole time, as I’m on the trustees. That means that if anyone wants to come and meet me, I’ll be there, and to meet each other, I’ll be there then as well!
My thoughts at the moment are that anyone who wants to come between 10 and 11 is welcome to find people / each other to chat with, then at 11 we’ll have a “buy and tell” session, where you can go and buy something from a stall (a 20p second hand shoe or a £50 glass necklace etc) and we can talk about it - a great exercise for your Welsh! Then from 12 we can have a SSiW surgery for half an hour, until it comes to time for me to start helping people pack up.
There is a tea, coffee and cakes stall (cakes by our helpers, who really know how to make cakes!), so we’ll be sitting in the public tea and coffee area, where there will be other, innocent Welsh speakers for you to use your Welsh with (I’ll let people know that they may be called upon to speak Welsh with brand new speakers - they’ll love it, and you’ll love it!).
That does mean that I’ll need an idea of how many people are coming, in case we need extra tables (or more Welsh speakers).
Note: there won’t be a “bwtcamp” rule or anything, but buy and tell will be in Welsh (and mime and occasional English words thrown in), which will be great for every level, and coffee / surgery will happen in a mixture of languages. So don’t worry if your Welsh is a bit sparse or shy at the moment - we’ll try and ease out what you have, and you’ll get loads from hearing other people, especially in buy and tell time.
So - who wants to speak Welsh in Llandysul? @dee
