Advance notice of the Welsh-language carol service at Jesus College, to which you are all welcome. It will take place on at 5 p.m. on Wednesday 4 December in the college chapel.


Lovely to meet you Owen, and thank you everyone for making my first Oxford Sgwrs a good one. I understood more than I expected, though I probably looked slightly confused for a lot of it! Looking forward to seeing you all next week. And I’ll try not to speak French in a moment of panic next time :rofl:


@ruth-connor I didn’t realise it was your first time too!


Diolch pawb for an enjoyable sgwrs and well done @ruth-connor and @owen-mcknight , you did really well :slightly_smiling_face:

This goes straight into my diary! :slightly_smiling_face:


Did you? I didn’t hear that. You did really well. I hardly understood anything when I started coming. I failed to understand when someone asked what my name was. Lovely to meet you, and see you next time.


Yes, seven is particularly good. See you again soon.


Helo pawb - for next week’s meetups don’t forget on Friday there’s a another change of venue, this time to the Royal Blenheim:

  • Wednesday morning, 9 Oct from 10:30am in Café Bap, Abingdon Rd
  • Friday morning, 11 Oct from 12:00 in the The Royal Blenheim, corner St Ebbes/Pembroke St (easier to find than The Turf so you probably don’t need a map but there’s one anyway below :slightly_smiling_face:)

… and don’t forget to make a note of this :slightly_smiling_face:

Hwyl, John


PS See also Oxford Walks thread for suggested dates for October & November walks


A quick reminder about tomorrow’s 1030am meetup in Cafe Bap - hope you can make it! :slightly_smiling_face:
Hwyl, John


I plan to come to Cafe Bap tomorrow but I notice it coincides with Cymru v Figii Cwpan rygbi’r byd! Hwyl Bethan


I’m recording it (and it’s too stressful to watch live! :anguished:).
We can check the score though via the Cafe Bap wifi :slightly_smiling_face:


I plan to be there too.


Also planning to come along (at some point…!) :slightly_smiling_face:


:santa: - yes, Nadolig/Christmas is peeping over the horizon and, remembering how successful was our Christmas lunch in Cafe Bap last year, maybe we should start thinking about organising another one this year? :grinning:
So… assuming we can find a convenient date, would you be up for an Oxford SSiW/(DRyG Rhydychen??) Xmas lunch?
We can focus on when and where once we know how many, but Cafe Bap could be a good choice if we could fit everyone in - I think there were eleven of us last year!
Hwyl, John


Yes, if date is OK. Last year was great.


Bethan, Sue and Chris gave the thumbs up on this at Cafe Bap today, but I guess I should tag the rest of you, @RichardBuck @cat-1 @rebecca @rachaelseculer-faber @jane-18 @mouselovinlady @thomasd @claireesau @ruth-connor @owen-mcknight just to make sure you’ve seen it :slightly_smiling_face: - and of course anyone else who might be interested
Hwyl, John
PS Re the Jesus College carol service, I should have mentioned that partners and children are also welcome :slightly_smiling_face:


Yes please! Count me in!! :christmas_tree:


Sounds a super plan to me :santa:


Helo eto

So far nine of us have said they’d like to come to CInio Nadolig :santa::grinning: I’ve set up this Doodle poll covering all December up to Nadolig for you to indicate suitable/maybe dates: (click on ‘+’ symbol to the right of ‘1 participant’ to add your name).

It’s fairly straightforward to complete and you can make changes later, but do let me know if you have any problems or questions :slightly_smiling_face:

Hwyl, John


Don’t forget pawb that we’re trying The Royal Blenheim for this week’s Friday 12:00 meetup :slightly_smiling_face:

Also, diolch Ruth, Sue and Bethan for completing the Cinio Nadolig Doodle poll - I’d meant to tag everyone about this (see above for link) but forgot :roll_eyes: - so I’d better do it now for the rest of you :slightly_smiling_face: @RichardBuck @cat-1 @rebecca @rachaelseculer-faber @jane-18 @mouselovinlady @thomasd @claireesau @owen-mcknight @chris-roberts

Hwyl, John
