The main reason we came as a family to live Carmarthenshire, was the Welsh language and culture. I wanted my children to be brought up in a Welsh-speaking area, where the language is quite natural. The recently published census figures have horrified me as an individual and as a parent. We all have a responsibility to ensure that our language is spoken and heard everywhere! I'm very proud to be a Welsh speaker, and I'm determined to continue to live my life in the language of heaven!
The census results have shown a reduction in the number of Welsh speakers across Wales, and the biggest drop was here in Carmarthenshire. I am glad that over 500 turned out to show their support for the rally - it is clear that the people of Carmarthenshire want to live in Welsh. This is only the first step. At a meeting following the rally we discussed the next steps of the campaign here. We will continue to press on the Government and the County Council to enable us to live in Welsh and our hope is that over a thousand people will have signed the pledge before the end of the month.
