Sorry … clickbait headline … but there could be money involved!
With my professional hat on (Swyddog Cymraeg Byd Busnes) I’m running a competition in Newport on 13, 14, 15 October to promote Diwrnod Shwmae Su’mae. Full details of how to take part are online at www.mentercasnewydd.shwmae/html, but the basic rules are this:
- Go into a participating business (full list online)
- Say “Shwmae” (or “bore da” or any other Welsh greeting that takes your fancy)
- Receive a sticker
- Collect 10 different stickers then send them in to me
- We’ll pick a name at random from all the valid entries to receive a £100 shopping voucher
It would be particularly fantastic to get lots of people taking part because it would really help me to persuade the businesses of Newport of the power of the Welsh(-speaking) pound. Plus, you get to visit some of the quirky independent businesses of Newport and practise your Welsh. Win-win!
