Diolch pawb. I’m really chuffed. With grateful thanks to my 2 year old for the inspiration and my mam @heather-9 for the encouragement.


Llongyfarchiadau i pawb!

When/where can we read/see the entries?


If you go to the top level of this Eisteddfod Section, you can see all the different categories and entries there and click into each one.


Diolch i bawb sy wedi pleidleisio i fi. Thanks to everyone who voted for me (And my mother and agent and the cat…). However, I want to encourage more people to take part in the Have You Say section. It’s not too difficult to win if you’re the only person who’s entered the competition, and that’s happened to me twice, in different contexts, over the years. We are, after all, the SAY SIW learners, speakers.


Llongyfarchiadau pawb! A diolch i pawb who voted for Dylan Columen! :slight_smile:


Llongyfarchiadau i bawb! Da iawn! :tada:

Congratulations to all the winners! Well done! And well done to everyone who participated!


Diolch i SSIW for my book token which arrived today.:slightly_smiling_face::upside_down_face::slightly_smiling_face: You can never, I can never have too many books in my life.


Mine has arrived as well. Diolch pawb.
It is my birthday today so your card was put aside until this morning. A doubly lovely surprise :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Thanks for the book token!
I hope Welsh publisher will restock the only bookstore I can get books from here. Or maybe better not, so I’ll have a good excuse to come back to Wales sooner! :wink:


My book token also arrived safely, diolch! I don’t think there is a book-shop here in Germany where I can use it, but I’ll be back in Wales sooner or later :slight_smile:
