Caro spotted this large rig being towed around the island on a sunny but bluster day – she could’t see what it was towing as it was hidden by the waves, but it was certainly pretty large! Anyone know what it was doing?
Dim cystal a George North!
By our Assembly Member, Rhun ap Iorwerth – Read it in English after this Welsh version
Dwi’n falch o allu dweud fod eich Aelod Cynulliad yn dal i fod mewn un darn ar ôl gêm rygbi ffyrnig arall rhwng y Cynulliad a Thai’r Cyffredin ac Arglwyddi. Dydym ni ddim cweit yr un safon a’r chwaraewr rygbi o Roscolyn, George North, ond rydym yn trio ein gorau!
Mae’r gêm yn ddigwyddiad blynyddol, sy’n cael ei gynnal ar ddiwrnod gêm Cymru v Lloegr yn y Chwe Gwlad. Fe enillodd y Cynulliad unwaith eto (am y 7fed gwaith yn olynol rwan) ond yn fwy pwysig, cawsom gyfle eto i godi ymwybyddiaeth o’n helusen, Bowel Cancer UK/Beating Bowel Cancer. Mae fy nghyd-weithiwr ym Mhlaid Cymru, Steffan Lewis AC, yn brwydro canser y coluddyn ar hyn o bryd, ac roedd o’n flaenllaw yn ein meddyliau wrth i ni gamu ar y cae ym Mharc Rosslyn yn Llundain.
Hefyd ar thema chwaraeon, hoffwn ddiolch i Ray Williams o Glwb Codi Pwysau a Ffitrwydd Caergybi ac Ynys Môn am roi tystiolaeth mor rymus i Bwyllgor Iechyd y Cynulliad yn ddiweddar ar yr angen am fesurau brys i gynyddu gweithgaredd corfforol ymysg pobl ifanc. Roeddwn i eisiau iddo ddod i siarad gyda ni am fy mod yn gwybod gymaint o ddadleuwr angerddol a gwybodus ydy o yn y maes yma. Mae hi i fyny i ni fel Aelodau Cynulliad rwan i wneud yr achos dros weithredu gan y Llywodraeth.
I’m pleased to report that your Assembly Member is still in one piece after another tough Assembly v Commons/Lords rugby clash! We’re not quite up to the standards of Rhoscolyn rugby player George North, but we try our best!
The match is an annual event, held on the day of the Wales v England 6 Nations Fixture. The Assembly won again (for the 7th game in succession) but more importantly we were able once again to raise awareness of our partner Charity, Bowel Cancer UK/Beating Bowel Cancer. My Plaid Cymru colleague Steffan Lewis is currently fighting bowel cancer, and our thoughts were with him as we took to the field at Rosslyn Park in London.
Also on a sporting theme, a word of thanks to Ray Williams of the Holyhead and Anglesey Weightlifting and Fitness Club for giving such compelling evidence to the Assembly’s Health Committee recently on the need for urgent measures to increase physical activity among young people. I wanted him to come to talk to us because I know what a passionate and knowledgeable advocate he is in this field. It’s up to us as Assembly Members now to press the case for Government action.
New arts and crafts centre on the way
The grade II listed chapel was taken over by Sophie and Mark Glanville six years ago, since when they have been working very hard on it, with the aim to run it as a gallery and craft centre with a tea room. They have got the necessary listed building and planning consents and done a lot of the work. They say they just need a final push to get it up and open for business this summer. But to do this they say they need some additional funds and are asking everyone if they would be prepared to subscribe to help them over this last hurdle. To find out more, follow this link:
