With successive Census returns revealing the decline of the Welsh language within its heartlands, out and in-migration changing the demographics of rural areas, and the insecurity of Brexit facing us, what is the future of the Welsh language within the traditional Welsh-speaking areas of north and west Wales? This is the question to be addressed at Dyfodol i’r Iaith’s Public Meeting at Galeri in Caernarfon next Saturday morning at 11 o’clock.
Very often, complex questions call for radical answers, and one answer that had been suggested already is ‘Arfor’, a new regional Authority for the north and west (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Ceredigion, and Carmarthen). This Authority would represent counties which face the same challenges regarding the Welsh language, the economy and culture; and could work strategically for the good of the region and the Welsh language.
With government restructuring again on the agenda, it is timely for us to welcome Adam Price AM to join us and discuss his vision for the Arfor scheme.
Is Arfor the solution? Come along to Galeri next Saturday to hear more, discuss and come to your own conclusion. A very warm welcome awaits you.
