Club Language Policy

The Llanfair Pwll Bowling club is situated in “Welsh Wales”.  95% of our members are fluent Welsh Speakers, but of course those speaking other languages are welcomed and become friends.

They are very much tolerated and appreciated.  Due to this “Welshness”, the Club has a linguistic Bilingual Policy, which is absolutely necessary in the area. It is therefore important that those living further afield must realize this, and accept it.  A great deal of our support comes from Welsh Institutions, who also have a Bilingual Policy.

An appreciation of this Bilingualism is healthy and shows an understanding of the needs of this particularly area of Wales.

In 2010, our Bilingual Policy won an award by “Clod Iaith”, for it’s good use of Welsh and achieving a high standard of every language aspect within the business.  The actual Certificate is on display in the Pavilion and was presented by Colin Jackson.
