Clwb Siarad 7/3/2019 – Learn Welsh with us each month

So much has happened since last month.  To begin with, we were very proud to see Deborah’s letter taking pride of place in the opening page of Lingo Newydd.  The following week, four of us were interviewed by BBC Wales, for a news bulletin they were doing about Preston Council’s success in keeping stores open in the town centre.  Then we heard the sad news that Gwen had died, and seven of us were able to meet her lovely family at her funeral in Blackburn on 27 February.  In the meantime, Wales were victorious against England in Cardiff on 23 February – a cause for much celebration.  On 1st March, 22 of us had a wonderful time at our St David’s Day Lunch at the Continental, where we were delighted to meet a 6 year old Welsh speaker from Cardiff, who was visiting his grandma in Preston.  We sang “Happy Birthday” in Welsh to Daphne and ended up singing it twice more to local diners who had a Welsh connection.  We have tried very hard to find suitable and affordable alternative premises as our permanent meeting place, but no luck so far.  We will meet again in The Continental on Thursday 4th April 2019.  Lunch will be available from 12.00 noon, learning will take place from 1.00-3.00pm and the Reading Group will meet from 3.00 – 4.30pm.
