I had the good fortune to hear, Cennard Davies, speak at an Eisteddod and he was very entertaining. Even though I was just learning he was very easy to understand (well the gist) as he speaks very clearly. He was funny as well…

@Deborah-SSi - don’t know if this is something you’d like for the newsletter.

Is he the chap from BBC Radio “Catchphrase”?

If I were nearer, I might have given it a go, even if it would be mostly over my head.
For £2, what’s to lose?

I’ll vouchfor Cennard as well. Personally, I know him through the Papur Bro network, and he’s a lovely, easy going bloke. Another interesting tidbit for anyone who ever meets him - he also taught my mother to speak Welsh…


He is.

I remember Cennard Davies from the 1980s when he taught in Barry with Basil Davies. How frustrating Tondu is probably a bit too far away for me. [Tondu = ‘black waste ground where nothing grows’?]
