Shwmae Su’mae Day 2015


On Thursday, October 15th the third Shwmae Su’mae Day was held, and once again Menter Bro Ogwr and many others across the country were busy encouraging people to greet everyone with “Shwmae” neu “Su’mae”.

This year, Menter Bro Ogwr took Sali Mali to Porthcawl, Sainsbury’s Sarn and Bridgend to greet people and spread the word about the day. Sali Mali met a number of lovely people on her travels and had some very nice photographs taken with them. You can see the photographs on Menter Bro Ogwr’s Facebook page (@menterbroogwr) and some on our website and on Twitter too.  We also asked you to your photographs of you celebrating Shwmae Day on our Facebook and Twitter pages for a chance to win a voucher for Siop yr Hen Bont. The winning photograph will be selected next week.

Menter Bro Ogwr would like to say thank you to the Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl for the welcome and for Sali Mali’s personal dressing room and to Sainsbury’s Sarn for the welcome too. We would also like to thank Aberkenfig Squadron, Tyfu gyda’r Gymraeg – Penybont, Bridgend Libraries, Cafe Mimis, The Bridge, Bridgend College, YellowWales, BAVO, Cylch Meithrin Plant Bach Sarn, Noddfa Community Project, Siop Siarad Penybont and everyone else that have contributed their fabulous photos!

It’s been wonderful to see everyone embracing this national day. Menter Bro Ogwr can’t wait for the next Shwmae Su’mae Day next year!
