Free sessions on Welsh language in social media

Published

on

BUSINESSES and organisations in Aberystwyth and Lampeter can take advantage of free information sessions which will offer networking opportunities along with opportunities to share best practice on using the Welsh language in social media.

Eleri Davies, who runs a Caravan Park in Mwnt, will lead the session on how to utilise social media using the Welsh language. There will also be an opportunity for those who attend to discuss their present social media usage and to share ideas for the future.

Social media is an important marketing tool. Welsh language marketing opportunities, such as Yr Awr Gymraeg (#yagym), or ‘Welsh Hour’ on Twitter, are part of a Welsh language digital community which offers businesses a chance to engage with an audience which appreciates the effort made by businesses to use the Welsh language online.

Councillor Catherine Hughes, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Culture said, “Using the Welsh language online can strengthen the relationship with customers, raise brand awareness and make a business or organisation stand out. It shows that a business or organisation is supportive of the local culture and community. With social media accounts by now driving traffic to specific websites, it’s a way for businesses and organisations to develop a relationship with new customers. It can gain an appreciation from Welsh language customers and customers who aren’t Welsh speakers.

The Aberystwyth Social Media Information Session will be held at Coleg Ceredigion’s Aberystwyth campus on 26 November at 6pm.

The Lampeter Social Media Information Session will be held at the Lloyd Thomas Centre on the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Lampeter Campus on 29 November at 5pm.

Non Davies, Cered Manager, said, “With the growing emphasis on online promotion, this session is an opportunity for us to support local businesses and the local economy and to highlight the potential benefits of using different techniques to highlight their uniqueness.”

The Welsh in the Workplace project has received LEADER support through the Cynnal y Cardi Local Action Group. The Project is administered by Ceredigion County Council and is funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020. The Programme is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.

The sessions are arranged by the team at the ‘Welsh in the Workplace’ project, which is run by Cered: Menter Iaith Ceredigion. Contact the Development Officers to confirm a place, or if you would like support to increase the use of the Welsh language in your business or organisation on 01545 572 350.

Published

on

CWMNI THEATR ARAD GOCH in Aberystwyth is set to receive £25,000 as part of the Welsh Government’s funding of community schemes over the next two years.

Alun Davies, Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services, has announced which organisations are set to benefit from £2 million of Welsh Government funding from the Community Facilities Programme (CFP).

It has been earmarked for 17 projects across Wales aimed at developing community facilities which bring people together.

CFP is a capital grant scheme which funds the development of community facilities; providing opportunities for local people to improve their day to day lives. Grants are available at two levels – up to £25,000 and up to £250,000. The scheme is open to community and voluntary sector organisations, including social enterprises. All applicants are expected to work with partners which can come from the public, private or the third sectors.

Arad Goch aims to create relevant theatre for young people, that inspires, motivates and is memorable. Their work draws on indigenous Welsh material and traditions as well as contemporary and challenging themes and styles.

By touring extensively in Welsh and English around Wales, to theatres, schools, halls and centres, they try to ensure that the widest possible audience, in all corners of the country, have the opportunity to see and enjoy contemporary theatre of the highest order. The funding will help Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch to improve its reception area, fit new windows and commission an arts installation.

Alun Davies said, “The purpose of this funding is to help create resilient communities, where people are directly engaged with local issues. I want our communities to help to deliver the vital local services their people need and I will to continue to empower them to be able to do this. Each of the projects announced today provide opportunities to deliver locally, while improving community cohesion and bringing people together.”

Since the CFP opened in 2015 it has funded 83 projects across Wales with grants totalling £17.7 million.
