On Saturday 15 February, over fifty young people from south Ceredigion gathered at the Urdd Camp, Llangrannog for ‘Ti'n Gêm?’, a Welsh-medium social day organised by Cered: Menter Iaith Ceredigion with the co-operation of the Urdd and Tatl Gaming.
The aim of the day was to give young people the opportunity to come together, socialize and enjoy various activities including computer games all through the medium of Welsh. By holding events like these, the hope is that children will realize that they can use the Welsh language in all aspects of life.
During the day there were opportunities to play Splatoon, FIFA and Minecraft computer games as well as taking part in a Mario Kart 8 tournament before experiencing the excitement of archery, the climbing wall and the high ropes course.
Rhodri Francis, Cered Development Officer, said: “The day was a great success with everyone enjoying themselves. The children's response to the activities was fantastic and the key was that they enjoyed themselves through the medium of Welsh. We hope to hold similar events in the future. We would like to thank Tatl Gaming for working with us and also the Urdd for organizing a series of hands-on activities for the children.”
Cered runs a variety of activities across the County so that people of all ages have the opportunity to socialize through the medium of Welsh. For more information on activities in your area, contact Cered on 01545 572350 or email@example.com.
