We were delighted to have another mention from Beverley Humphreys when she was a guest on The Roy Noble Show on Sunday morning.  She was chatting to Roy about Calon Lân and its significance in Welsh culture.  She spoke very warmly about us and gave a great insight into Daniel James and how Calon Lân is so well known not just in Wales but in the wider world!  If you missed it, it is available for a few days to listen again via this link:

Don't just listen to the Calon Lân feature, listen to the whole show, (as always) it is packed full of interesting bits of information that you just have to go and find out about. 

Calon Lân is everywhere at the moment and if you feel so inclined then you can record your version and send it into BBC Wales - again follow the link below.

We will be posting up lots more news and information in the coming weeks and months - so thank you for staying with us during our quiet period but there is a lot starting to happen so - Watch This Space!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to eveyone who has followed our blog and supported our project - thankyou!
 
There were good intentions yesterday to go for a New Year walk from Mynyddbach but the weather got the better of us.  However, despite that we had a very successful morning with new faces turning up to find out more about the new and exciting Calon Lan Centre.  There was a slide show giving information about the history of Mynyddbach, a look around the Chapel and a muddy visit to the grave of Daniel James.  Then it was cawl, bara brith and pizza - but not necessarily in that order!  Thank you to everyone that came and also to those who gave their time and made the morning a success.
