The Society was founded in 1920 with the object of providing opportunities for Welsh people in Edinburgh to meet socially and to continue their interest in the language and culture of Wales.

Membership is not restricted to those of Welsh origin. Anyone with an interest in Welsh culture is welcome to become a member and attend meetings.

We’ve now held our Carol Service, so it’s now time for a Christmas message from our President:

Annwyl Aelod – blwyddyn arall bron wedi dod i ben a doedd 2021 ddim gwell na 2020 – gobeithio fydd 2022 yn well.

Rhaid i ni gyd edrych ymlaen gyda agwedd “positif” a gobeithio fydd yr olygfa yn gwella cyn bo hir. Gobeithio hefyd cawn ni gyfarfod “wyned i wyneb” a hel straeon am y brechiadau.

Da ni yn gobeithio gewch chi gyfarfod hefo teulu a ffrindiau a cael ychydig o bleser a mwynhad dros y Nadolig a’r Flwyddyn Newydd.

Felly Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd dda i bawb.

Cymerwch ofal ac aroswch yn iach.

Hwyl fawr a diolch o galon am eich cefnogaeth – David & Alison

Dear EWS member – 2021 is almost at an end and we remain in the grip of this dreadful situation. In my 2020 Christmas message I expressed the hope that 2021 would be better than 2020 – well that didn’t work, did it!

However we must remain upbeat and positive and hope for a better year in 2022. I do hope that before too long we will be able to meet again in person – we can then compare our vaccination stories!

We both hope that you can have time and enjoyment with family and friends over the Christmas and New Year period.

So please have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Take care, and stay safe and healthy.

Best wishes and thanks for your ongoing support – David & Alison

We look forward to seeing you sometime in 2022, hopefully face-to-face. If you are on our mailing list, you’ll hear what’s happening; if you’re not, please email our secretary! [And there’s always our Newsletter page!]
