Shwmae Sumae 2014 was a great success, with celebrations taking place across Wales and beyond – in Pwllheli, Newport, Merthyr, Lampeter, Vienna, Patagonia, Bangor, Amlwch, Derby, Flintshire and Pembrokeshire. Everyone is working hard to raise the profile of the language, but most importantly to use and promote and encourage others to do so throughout the year. Shwmae Sumae is not just for Welsh speakers, but for those wishing to learn welsh too.
Shwmae Sumae Day now has a momentum of its own and is spreading throughout the country via a variety of activities organised by schools, individuals and societies, just like a Mexican wave at the World Cup. It is very difficult to keep a track on all that happened, but by keeping an eye on the feedback on our Facebook page and Twitter account I’m sure that there were over 500 events held in 2015. So lets hope that there will be even more this year.
As you know the success and continuity of Shwmae Sumae day lies in your hands, so please let us know about your event by contacting our Facebook page and following us on Twitter @ShwmaeSumae There are a number of tips and ideas on our facebook page and a list of last year’s event which may inspire you on our website www.shwmae.org
