Published

eist123GUTO DAFYDD, yw enillydd Coron Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Sir Gâr. Cyflwynwyd y Goron iddo mewn seremoni ar lwyfan y Pafiliwn, brynhawn Llun, 4 Awst. Yn 24 oed, mae Guto’n un o’r beirdd ieuengaf erioed i ennill y Goron yn y Brifwyl. 

Gyda 32 o feirdd wedi cystadlu yn y gystadleuaeth eleni, Golygfa 10 ddaeth i’r brig am ei ddilyniant o 10 cerdd ddigynghanedd heb fod dros 250 llinell ar y testun ‘Tyfu’. Traddodwyd y feirniadaeth o lwyfan y Pafiliwn gan Dylan Iorwerth, ar ran ei gyd-feirniaid, Marged Haycock a Dafydd Pritchard, ac wrth sôn am waih Golygfa 10, dywedodd, “Canu am Gymru heddiw trwy sôn hefyd am Gymru ddoe. Ac yn y chwarae rhwng y ddau y mae gogoniant y cerddi. Mae yna sawl math o dyfu – geni babi i’r byd, twf neu ddiffyg twf cenedl, isstori am dwf perthynas rhwng dau ac, ar y diwedd, awgrym y gallwn ni dyfu y tu hwnt i’n hargyfwng presennol. “Cerddi heddiw ydyn nhw. Rhai am ddigwyddiadau eleni. Ymhen blwyddyn neu ddwy mi fydd angen troednodiadau ac mi fydd rhai’n gweld hynny’n wendid. Ond dan ni’n beirniadu eleni. Ac mae Golygfa Deg yn gosod heddiw mewn ffordd iasol ar gefndir cannoedd o flynyddoedd o’n hanes ni. “Meddyliwch am osod helyntion Radio Cymru ac asiantaeth EOS ochr yn ochr â’r hen gerdd am grogi’r telynor Sion Eos o dan gyfraith Lloegr. Meddyliwch am roi stormydd Aberystwyth ochr yn ochr â’r gwynt a’r glaw ym marwnad Llywelyn ein Llyw Olaf, ffordd osgoi Porthmadog efo Dafydd Nanmor a’i hiraeth am ei gariad. Drama Blodeuwedd ac Atomfa Trawsfynydd – ein greddf ddireolaeth ni a grym rhannu’r atom. “Wrth i’r pethau yna ddod ynghyd – ac oherwydd meistrolaeth dechnegol Golygfa Deg a’i hyder o wrth drin iaith a goslef -– mae yna rywbeth llawer mwy’n digwydd. Ffrwydrad o ystyr a’r cryniadau’n parhau ymhell bell ar ôl gorffen darllen. Mi gawson ni ein codi o’n cadeiriau i dir uchel iawn gan fardd meistrolgar. “Yn y diwedd, doedd y penderfyniad mawr ddim yn anodd o gwbl. Coron eleni ydi hi ac mae hi’n bendant iawn yn mynd i Golygfa Deg.” Daw Guto Dafydd yn wreiddiol o Drefor, ond mae bellach yn byw ym Mhwllheli gyda Lisa’i wraig. Ar ôl mynd i Ysgol yr Eifl, Ysgol Glany- Môr a Choleg Meirion-Dwyfor, graddiodd yn y Gymraeg o Brifysgol Bangor, lle cwblhaodd draethawd hir ar waith Wiliam Owen Roberts ac Iwan Llwyd. Erbyn hyn, mae’n gweithio i Wasanaeth Ymchwil a Dadansoddeg Cyngor Gwynedd. Mae arno ddyled i’w deulu ac i athrawon a llu cyfeillion am ei gefnogi a’i ysbrydoli. Bu’n cystadlu mewn eisteddfodau mawr a bach ers blynyddoedd, gan lwyddo i lenwi dresel ei Nain ag ambell dlws a chadair. Enillodd Goron Eisteddfod yr Urdd Sir Benfro 2013, ar ôl cael sawl siom, a daeth yn agos at frig y gystadleuaeth hon yn Ninbych y llynedd. Mae’n drydarwr brwd, yn aelod o dîm Talwrn y Tywysogion a thîm ymryson Caernarfon, ac yn mwynhau darllen, darlithio ac adolygu. Mae’n un o golofnwyr y Glec, ac yn cyfrannu’n rheolaidd i Barn, Barddas, Tu Chwith a chyhoeddiadau eraill. Mae Jac, ei nofel dditectif gyffrous i bobl ifanc, newydd ddod o wasg y Lolfa, a chyhoeddir ei gyfrol gyntaf o farddoniaeth gan Gyhoeddiadau Barddas yng ngwanwyn 2015. Rhoddir y Goron a’r wobr ariannol eleni gan Gyngor Sir Gâr, a chomisiynwyd yr artist lleol, Angharad Pearce Jones i ymgymryd â’r dasg o gynllunio a chreu y Goron. Cafodd y cynllun ei ysbrydoli gan dreftadaeth diwydiannol ardal yr Eisteddfod, ynghyd â hanes coeden Myrddin. Mae’r cynllun ar ffurf coeden, sy’n tyfu o’r tu blaen tuag at y cefn. Daeth yr ysbrydoliaeth o hanes coeden Myrddin, o lle mae tref a Sir Gaerfyrddin yn cael eu henwau, a gwnaethpwyd y Goron o ddur. Er y deunydd diwydiannol roedd yr artist yn awyddus i’r Goron edrych yn gywrain, yn addurnedig ac yn werthfawr. Gellir prynu’r Cyfansoddiadau a Beirniadaethau, sy’n cynnwys y feirniadaeth lawn ar gyfer y gystadleuaeth hon ynghyd â manylion enillwyr cystadlaethau cyfansoddi’r Eisteddfod i gyd, yn dilyn Seremoni’r Cadeirio brynhawn Gwener.

Malcolm Roy Edwards of Queens Road, Aberystwyth, pleaded guilty to being drunk in public in Llanrystud when he was prohibited from doing so after being made subject to a criminal behaviour order by Aberystwyth magistrates on October 12, 2017.

AM and MP help ease complicated bus pass application process

Published

on

Elin Jones AM and Ben Lake MP have offered to help constituents who need to renew their Bus Passes, after raising concerns about the change in the renewal process.

As the current Concessionary Travel Passes run out at the end of the year, Transport For Wales have asked pass holders to reapply online, however Elin Jones and Ben Lake have raised concerns that the process is over complicated and that applying online rather than via a paper form will exclude many.

Initially, if applicants wanted a paper form, TfW said that applicants had to call a helpline and were warned the process would take a long time. So, as thousands went onto the website, it crashed under the weight of demand.

However, with the website expected to be back up and running soon, Elin Jones and Ben Lake have offered to help constituents reapply.

Elin Jones said:

“Bus pass users have been told that their current passes will be accepted for travel until 31 December 2019, however after that they will need to have the new pass.

“The application process has been muddled by urging people to reapply online. We know that many over 60s and disabled people may not have internet access or may be unfamiliar with its use.

“To simplify the process, I am offering the support of my office to try and help constituents with the process of reapplying for their bus pass, and Ben Lake MP is doing the same.

“If constituents would like to collect a paper form, or if they require assistance applying on paper or online, then they are welcome to contact us and we would be glad to assist, either by arranging a visit to either of our offices, or by sending forms to you.”

Ben Lake added:

“We know how vital access to buses are to many older and vulnerable people in Ceredigion, and I hope that we will be able to help as many people as possible to keep this access.”
