Making their welcome return around the street of Cardigan are the ‘Hapus i Siarad’ [Happy to Talk] stickers as Menter Iaith Ceredigion relaunches its scheme to promote the use of Welsh at town centre businesses.

‘Hapus i Siarad’ was initially launched in 2013 with the aim of normalising the use of spoken Welsh at local shops, cafes and pubs.

A sticker was provided to participating businesses to place in their windows, and badges were promoted for all Welsh speakers to wear.

A spokesperson for Ceredigion County Council said: "Whilst Cardigan has changed greatly over the decade since launching the scheme, the 'Hapus i Siarad' stickers are still seen across the town.

"There has been demand to re-launch the scheme in order to make it easier for Welsh speakers of all kinds, including learners, to know where they can start a conversation in Welsh with confidence.

"With it being the Welsh Language Commissioner’s Welsh Offer Week, Mentrau Iaith in the ARFOR area, including Cered in Ceredigion, are holding a range of activities and making a number of exciting announcements such as this one to mark the occasion.

"Over the next few months, Cered would like to hear from residents and businesses in the area to learn what kind of resources would be of interest to promote this scheme.  These could include window stickers, badges, leaflets and posters, etc."
