Dyfodol i’r Iaith had a very busy and successful Eisteddfod. Our policy document, Creating a Future for the Welsh Language was launched on the Monday, and this was followed by open, informal discussions throughout the week, each based upon different elements of the document.
Each of the main parties contributed to these discussions. Keith Davies (Labour), Aled Roberts (Liberal Democrat), Suzy Davies (Conservative) and Alun Ffred Jones (Plaid) all called in to discuss various sections of Creating a Future for the Welsh Language.
This was the first such event for Dyfodol to have arranged at the Eisteddfod, and it received a positive reaction from the Assembly Members and those attending the Eisteddfod.
Over the next few weeks, we will be arranging a cross-party reception at the Senedd to further raise awareness of the document. We will also be meeting with the parties’ manifesto coordinators, with a view to persuading them to adopt the policies outlined in Creating a Future for the Welsh Language; the kind of policies that will secure a bright future for the language.
Thank you to all who joined us on the Thursday in extending a warm welcome to Elinor Jones as our new President. We look forward to the benefit of Elinor’s input, expertise, profile and experience.
