I remember seeing a while back that there was a Clwb Clonc event that strated in event in Monmouth on Fridays, but I don’t know if it is still going, does anyone know about this event?
I was also wondering if anyone knew how to access the calendar with all the Bore Coffi events that the Gwent Welsh for Adults centre organises, I remember someone showing me before, but my laptop was wiped, losing my bookmarks etc.
Coleg Gwent organises some coffee mornings/informal discussions in Monmouthshire (Gwent). Helen Young is the person to speak to in the Welsh for Adults Centre in Pontypŵl.
There are a number of informal gatherings around the county which are not under the control of Coleg Gwent, in Chepstow, Caldicot, Monmouth, Abergavenny, Raglan and there may be others.
Hey @llanddinol I meant to give the centre a call but forgot to in the end, will try and remember tomorrow when they are open. Do you know about any of these other informal groups that are not SSIW or Goleg Gwent, as the area around Monmouth seems to have few events I can find.
I have moved back to just outside Monmouth, and hope to see you at the next Casgwent meetup if you’ll be there? Not sure if I will be able to make the Casnewydd one, logistically it is harder for me
Where do you live now and what day(s) and time(s) are most convenient for you?
There is a Welsh Society in Monmouth with a web site.
I believe they have informal gatherings in the Kings Head near the Town Hall but I do not know when.
They hold a reading group every other Thursday afternoon in the library.
A tutor with Coleg Gwennt held an afternoon chat group after his class finished on a Friday.
There is an informal meeting in the Beaufort, Raglan every Tuesday morning 10.30 - 12.00 approx.
There is a more formal meeting in the Fellowship Centre, Raglan every Friday morning, 9.30 - 11.30. This is one of the Coleg Gwent meetings.
As far as I know there is nothing else in the Monmouth area. If you can get to it, there is an SSiW group in Malvern.
I found the website, and it appears there are a load of activities in the area, fantastic, thanks a lot, think I may attend one from 10am - 12pm tomorrow
I have been to the group in Malvern on several occasions, it has been great, but unfortunately quite far away. Unfortunately there seems to be a general lack of weekend or evening meetups, when I am most free.
I have moved to Orcop, which is just off the Hereford to Monmouth road, just into Hereford, but probably closer to Monmouth than Hereford, though roughly in the middle.
It seems you have accessed it fine, it was just a message here, but they send you an email to let you know I think, not me directly.
I am not sure which pieces of information are correct on the Monmouth Welsh Society website, for example it says the King’s Head meetup starts at roughly 7:30 pm, but I remember seeing something about a 3-4 pm event, so I have sent a message to contact email address, do you know anything about the King’s Head group?
Thanks for the link, shame they only meet once a month, but still looks interesting
