Posted Monday June 11th, 2018 in the News category

Wrexham’s RaceCourse, 1864 Suite was the place to be on Friday evening, 8th June, 2018 as Camu ‘Mlaen took place.

The evening of fun for families was organised by Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam, to launch the Welsh lessons for parents that will take place over the coming weeks by Coleg Cambria with a children’s club arranged by the Urdd for ages 5-11 at the same time.

Plenty of activities had been arranged for the evening with children of all ages enjoying themselves. There was face painting, balloon modelling, crafts, circus workshop, bow and arrow activity with the Urdd and activities for the little ones from Mudiad Meithrin and Cymraeg i Blant.

Special Visitors

DJ Bustach was also present to entertain everyone with Welsh music and Synnwyr Cyffredin, a Welsh band gave an acoustic performance. The highlight of the evening was a visit from our special guests; Magi Ann, Dewin and Mr Urdd and everyone joined a singing session with them.
