Coventry meetup, looking for additional dates and venues


Update, the new year meetings for the Coventry/Rugby groups are:
Coventry - Wednesdays Jan 9, Feb 14, March 14 (Litten Tree pub, 6.30 pm)
Rugby - Saturdays Jan 16, Feb 19, March 19 (Wyevale Garden Centre cafe, 10.30 am)



Diolch @andyjone but do you mean Feb 13 and Mar 13 for the Coventry meetups?

And the dates you’ve given for Rugby are not Saturdays.


Oh yes @dee so wed jan 9, Feb 13, mar 13
Sat jan 19, Feb 16, mar 16

Got my 9s and 6s mixed up!



Hi everyone, I just want to remind Coventry and Warwickshire and Northamptonshire people that the next Saturday meeting at the Wyevale Centre is the 19th as stated above, NOT the 12th as I wrongly announced at the meeting tonight.

Thanks everyone for coming over tonight, we had a really nice evening.



Hi @dee, please could you add the Rugby SSIW group’s dates to the calendar - we meet on the third Saturday of the month, 10.30 a.m. at the Wyevale Garden Centre cafe, Straight Mile, Bourton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire CV23 9QQ so our next meetings are Jan 19, Feb 16 and March 16. Anyone interested can contact me or @alice9.

Thanks Andy. I’ve updated it in the list now. I had it under Bourton-on-Dunsmore, but I’ve changed it to Rugby now and put “3rd Sat of the month”



Thanks @Dee - I didn’t think to look under Bourton-on-Dunsmore but I think it’s better under Rugby anyway :slight_smile: thanks!


Ydy grwp hwn dal yn cyfarfod pob mis?


@Cilgwri Ydy. Dyn ni’n cyfarfod fore dydd Sadwrn nesaf, yr 16fed, am hanner awr wedi deg.


Shwmae pawb,

We talked about online Welsh Speaking Practice (WSP for short) at yesterday’s meeting at the Garden Centre cafe. WSP is set up and managed by SaySomethinginWelsh, but it’s free to join, free to use and anyone can join. The idea of it is an online community of people who want to practice speaking Welsh online to each other. This can be by 1:1 sessions or in group chats (Google hangouts).

WSP uses a platform called Slack, which can be downloaded as an app for phone / tablet, or logged on to using a website. If you want to get set up on this, email with the subject title “WSP” for an invite.

When admin emails you back to say it’s set up, either download the Slack app and go to or go directly to using the internet browser on your PC.

You can also watch this YouTube video to see how to set up Slack - although this youtube video is for the 6 months welsh course Slack, so remember that the is slightly different but very similar.

Pob lwc! Let me know how you get on.
