Firstly, big apologies for having skipped a year with the SSiW party. I won’t bore you with the details, but life took over and organising a get together became a little difficult.
But we are now back on track and ready to go again! After experimenting with different formats and venues, we’ve finally decided to take inspiration from the Welsh National Eisteddfod. 2017’s SSiW bash will be held up here in the North, then the next one in 2018 will be down South. We’ve also noted that the beginning of the year in the middle of winter can be a difficult time of year, so have decided that next year’s bash will be in early spring.
I am meeting with the events organiser of a fab venue on Thursday morning, so hopefully will have some exciting news for you very soon. I’m also hoping to invite some special guests. The venue will be in a location close to a wide choice of hotels and guest houses and will have good transport links.
We will announce the dates before the end of November and will make sure that the event is well advertised before we open the booking page.
Thanks for your continuing patience and support and I’m hoping that we will be able to raise glasses together very soon.
I thought a poll might be interesting and give us a good idea of numbers -
- Dw i’n sicr am fynychu! / I’m definitely going to attend!
- Mae gen i ddiddordeb mewn mynychu / I’m interested in attending
- Dw i ddim am fynychu y tro hwn / I’m not going to attend this time
