Flintshire’s St David’s Day Celebrations

Published: 23/02/2022

Menter Iaith.jpgThis year, in partnership with Flintshire County Council, Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam have organised a whole fortnight of activities, between February 19th and March 5th, to remember St David, Patron Saint of Wales.

Following the success of last year's virtual St David's Day celebrations, we want to make sure there is something for everyone again this year.

County schools have been very busy preparing work for our St David's Day competitions. Remember to visit our social media to see all the wonderful work and results throughout the week of 1st-5th.

We are also offering a variety of virtual activities to enjoy including Orielodl design videos, cookery workshops and more.

In addition, we will be sharing information about other local Welsh language and bilingual activities over the fortnight from ourselves and other organisations. You can find information about all these on Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam social media.

The Leader of the Council, Councillor Ian Roberts, said: 

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam once again to celebrate St David’s Day. Celebrating our Welsh culture and heritage is a very special event in Flintshire and is very important to us. The programme of events is an opportunity for everyone to participate and enjoy the celebrations.

"I would like to thank Menter Iaith for all their hard work pulling this varied programme together and the organisations who are involved and are participating in the activities."

Chief Executive of Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam, Gill Stephen, said;

"The St David's Day celebrations have been growing in popularity each year and have now become established as a hugely popular and prominent event in the calendar of the people of Flintshire. This is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate the Welsh identity of the county and everyone of all ages is welcome to join in the fun, Welsh speakers or not.”
