18.06.15 GRŴP IAITH Y FELINHELI and GŴYL Y FELIN 2015

OSIAN’S VLOG

Grŵp Iaith y Felinheli (Felinheli Language Group) brings together Felinheli people who want to see the Welsh language continue to thrive as a relevant and vital part of life in the community.

With the support of hunaniaith: the Gwynedd wide menter iaith, Osian Owen a member of Grŵp Iaith y Felinheli created his own vlog.  A vlog is simply a blog recorded on video:  video+blog = vlog.  The vlog aims to demonstrate to everyone how the Welsh language is part of the fabric of everyday life for a young person in Felinheli and how vital it is that the language retains its place at the centre of village life.

Osian’s vlog shows aspects of his daily life and how each aspect naturally takes place in Welsh.  As he takes a walk around the village he interviews several local people about their attitudes to Welsh and why the language, for a variety of reasons is important to them.

Grŵp Iaith y Felinheli hope that as many local people as possible get to see the vlog during Gŵyl y Felin week.  Enjoy watching it at:  the Festival launch at y Felingylchu on Friday, June 26th; in the marquee from 5.30 p.m., Monday 29th before the children’s film begins; in the marquee before the quiz on Tuesday evening, June 30th and again on Saturday afternoon in the marquee during the carnival. Following Gŵyl y Felin the vlog can be seen on www.Felin.org and on the Felinhlei Facebook profile.

After seeing the vlog Grŵp Iaith y Felinheli asks everyone to reflect on three things:

  • what the Welsh language means to them?
  • what kind of place would Felinheli be without the Welsh language?
  • what they can do to make sure the Felinheli will never lose the Welsh language?

Thanks to everyone who took part in the vlog:

Osian Owen, Dylan Bryn, Nerys Owen,  Sian Gwenllian, Beverley Jones, Hannah Swann.  

Thanks also to the Gŵyl y Felin Committee, the Londis Store and Swellies Café. 

Production: Sioned Jones, hunaniaith, Eleth Peate, Gwynedd Council.

Update - Planning Application Cae Fodol

Planning application Cae Fodol (Gypsy site) being discussed at Planning Committee 15.06.2015 "As Felinheli councillor I have had an opportunity to consult with villagers about this application, including holding a public meeting with the Community Council. We are 100% against this development. I note that the planning officers are recommending refusal and I agree with the reasons. It does not make sense to build a caravan park in a recognised flood zone or within a corridor of important wild-life and it is an over-development of the site, lacking in amenities."

Councillor Sian Gwenllian’s report  JUNE 2015

  • CUTS: Gwynedd Council, like all councils, is going through a process of making cuts. I am attending a series of 5 workshops to discuss the possibilities before the public is invited to give its views. The Council needs to agree to £9M worth of cuts by March 2016.
  • Church Hall: I attended a constructive meeting to discuss improving the Hall and making use of the land at the back for community car parking.
  • Steps leading down to Dock:  the Council has re-opened but have put safety measures in place at the bottom as there is still concern about public safety.
  • Cae Fodol Planning Permission for Gypsy site: up for discussion at Planning Committee 15.06.2016.

Gŵyl y Felin T-shirts from Hunaniaith

During Gŵyl y Felin week hunaniaith will be sharing out T-shirts amongst young people in the village. Hunaniaith works to encourage people to use the Welsh that they have and to be proud to be able to do so. These T-shirts, unique to Felinheli and unavailable anywhere else, aim to raise young people’s awareness of being able to speak Welsh and that living in Felinheli is an integral part of that Welsh identity. Are you good with words and concepts and putting the two together? A catchy, short and slick slogan or saying is needed for the front of the T-shirts. If you can think of a clever slogan get in touch with Ifan at hunaniaith at IfanLlewelynJones@gwynedd.gov.uk.
