Welsh learners/speakers in Surrey/West Sussex?


I’m wondering if there’s any interest out there for a meet-up in Guildford?

This could be convenient for people who live in the surrounding area including (for example) Cranleigh, Godalming, Horsham, Farnham, Sussex, even Greater London.

Let me know if you’re interested - either by replying to this, or you can message me on the SSiW Slack where I am @Sarah .

@Deborah-SSi Would you be able to add this to the newsletter please? Diolch yn fawr!


I’ve sent a message on Slack


@gareth-19 I can’t see the message for some reason. What’s your handle on Slack?


@Gareth H


Definitely - I’ll pop it in for this week.

There has been a very active group in your area for 10 years now, though I’m not sure what they’ve been doing lately - CACEN Meetup South East England
Try leaving a message there for @markwatkinprice :slight_smile:


Diolch @Deborah-SSi ! I didn’t know about the South East group - will definitely look into this.


Hi Sarah, I’m in Basingstoke and our local group filled last year due to lack of regular be attendees. Is be interested to attend at least some meetings in the Guildford area

I would love to see that happen in Surrey. I live in Great Bookham, and Cymraeg is difficult to hear here.


I’d be interested, I’m Aldershot and used to meet with the Cacen group when I lived in Dorking.


I’d be interested. I’m about 10 miles from Guildford, when I’m not in Wales.


Shwmae pawb! It’s fantastic to get so many responses!
I’m thinking a Saturday meet-up say, once a month could be a good thing to aim for.
I’ve just realised that summer may not be the best time to start trying to schedule stuff as people are away at different times. So I’m wondering if the best thing to do would be to put a date in the diary for a group meet up in September? What do people think?
Would Saturday 11 Sept at 3pm in Guildford work?



Shwmae, Sarah,
Apologies for not replying sooner but I’d be up for a meeting in Guilsdford on 11/9 if that’s still on.


I’m in Effingham - not far away. Sounds interesting. As Harry says, not much Welsh spoken here.
