BYDD SÊR blaenaf Cymru i’w gweld yn perfformio ar hyd a lled Maes yr Eisteddfod yn Sir Fynwy a’r Cyffiniau eleni, yn ôl y trefnwyr, wrth iddyn nhw gyhoeddi rhaglen gynhwysfawr o ddigwyddiadau nos yn Y Fenni.

Meddai Elen Elis, Trefnydd yr Eisteddfod: “Mae rhaglen nos yr Eisteddfod wedi datblygu cymaint dros y blynyddoedd diwethaf. Yn draddodiadol, dim ond cyngherddau oedd i’w cael gyda’r nos a’r rheiny’n glasurol iawn eu naws. Wrth i ni ddatblygu, rydym wedi ymateb i ofynion y gynulleidfa, ac mae pob math o weithgareddau yn digwydd ar y Maes gan geisio sicrhau bod rhywbeth i bawb yn ystod yr wythnos.

“Mae’r cyngherddau, wrth gwrs, yn parhau i fod yn rhan bwysig iawn o’r arlwy yn ystod yr wythnos, ac rwy’n gobeithio ein bod wedi rhoi rhaglen a fydd yn apelgar at ei gilydd eleni. Mae gennym gymysgedd eang o genres cerddorol, o Big Band i glasurol ysgafn, a phop.

“Wrth gwrs, mae gennym bafiliwn newydd eleni, ac rydym yn hyderus y bydd yr adeilad hwn yn gwella’r profiad i’r gynulleidfa a’r artistiaid. A chyda dechrau newydd fel hyn, mae modd arbrofi a chyflwyno syniadau newydd, ac mae’r rhain yn cynnwys gig gyda Candelas, Yr Ods a Sŵnami, a noson yng ngofal Catrin Finch, Serenestial: Antur trwy Ofod ac Amser. Dwy noson wahanol iawn, sydd, wrth eu hychwanegu at weddill yr arlwy, yn creu wythnos o amrywiaeth pur, gyda’r cyfan o safon arbennig iawn.

“Mae poblogrwydd Llwyfan y Maes wedi ffrwydro dros y blynyddoedd diwethaf – dyma ganolbwynt y Maes i lawer, ac mae sicrhau bod y bandiau a’r perfformwyr gorau i’w gweld yma, ynghyd â rhoi llwyfan i ddoniau mwy lleol a newydd, yn rhan hollbwysig o’n gwaith. Eisoes cyhoeddwyd mai Huw Chiswell a’r Band fydd yn perfformio yn y slot fawr nos Wener, a braf yw gallu cyhoeddi’r nosweithiau eraill heddiw hefyd.

“I lawer, Maes B yw uchafbwynt yr Eisteddfod, a bydd y lein-yps eleni’n sicr o apelio at gefnogwyr y sîn Gymraeg. Yws Gwynedd yw prif artist nos Fercher, Y Reu, nos Iau, Y Bandana nos Wener, a Band Pres Llareggub ac Yr Ods nos Sadwrn. Byddwn yn cyhoeddi rhagor o fandiau’n fuan. A chofiwch fod tocynnau arbennig ar gael sy’n cynnwys mynediad i’r gig, i’r Maes ac i wersylla yn y Maes peByll.”

Council supports the Learning Disabilities ‘My Charter’

Published

on

CABINET members and senior officers in Ceredigion have signed ‘My Charter’. In doing so, Ceredigion County Council have become the first council to sign up to the charter. My Charter was written by people who have learning disabilities in West Wales.

The charter says that people who have learning disabilities want to have more chances in life, more choice and to be listened to. It also says that people who have learning disabilities want to be treated as adults, to be given dignity and respect and that their information is kept private.

Councillor Alun Williams is the Cabinet member responsible for Adult Services. He said: “People with learning disabilities have the same aspirations, hopes and feelings as everyone else. They deserve the same services and to be treated equally in a way that’s appropriate to their needs. I’m delighted that Ceredigion has become the first council to sign the charter, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this can positively influence the way our population of people with learning disabilities are treated in the future.”

The charter was developed by people who have learning disabilities from across Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
