The community flocked to support the show and The Chimes was played to a packed house filled with the villagers from 8 to 80 years of age. Thank you.…Continue

Greetings/cyfarchion. I'm doing some research for a potential NTW project and would love to put a question out there. What is Welshness? What, for you, is the meaning or definition or essence of being Welsh or living in Wales? I'm not looking for paragraphs. Just a few words. Even one word, in either language. One pal whom I asked said simply "an albatross". Someone else said "Knowing the meaning of hiraeth". What's your answer? All contributions extremely welcome, and very liable to end up…Continue
