Diwrnod Shwmae (Shwmae Day)

​​The aim of Shwmae day is to show that the Welsh language belongs to everyone – fluent speakers, learners, those who have lost confidence and those who only know a few words.

Shwmae is a South Wales way of saying ‘How do you do?’ or Su’mae for North Wales.

Shwmae day is an annual event to celebrate the Welsh language. There will be a display stand in County Hall reception, and many teams have organised their own events to celebrate the day.  
A number of Council departments have come together to create a short video which will be shown on the day. Our customer contact centre, C2C, will be giving a presentation to their staff, playing Welsh language music as their hold music, and of course will be greeting all customers with ‘Shwmae' on Friday.

This year diwrnod Shwmae (Shwmae Day)External link opens in a new window is on the 15th of October, which is a Sunday, so along with many other organisations the Council will be celebrating the event on Friday 13th of October 2017.
