Croeso Cynnes i Bawb

dragon

We’re a group of people living in mid-Lancashire with an enthusiasm for all things Welsh: the country, the language, and family ties.  Everyone sharing that enthusiasm is welcome to come and join us.  We’re a very friendly bunch.  Language learning and conversation practice are our main activities.  Some of us are fluent, native speakers, but most of us are learners on a wide range of levels:  beginners / foundation to higher.

We meet regularly between September and July each year.  Our face to face meetings take place at The Continental Pub, South Meadow Lane, Preston, PR1 8JP.  The dates for 2022 – 2023 are shown below.  We also hold 3 weekly zoom sessions, 1 for fairly fluent learners and 2 for less fluent learners.

If you want to know more about these events or our zoom meetings, email Anne at clwbsiarad@gmail.com.  We also have a Facebook page – search in “Groups” for Welsh Club Preston.

Our motto is “CROESO CYNNES I BAWB” – a “warm welcome to everyone” – fluent, rusty or learner.
