Playgroup children help to put Llan on the map

* The map of Llangollen created by children of Cylch Meitrin.

Creative youngsters at a Welsh language playgroup in Llangollen have helped to put the town on the map.

Cylch Meitrin aims to enable its young members to learn Welsh through play.

As a charity the group is always has an eye on improving its finances and over the past few months it has been busy designing and creating a map of the area which it hopes will help boost funds.

The group’s chairman Daniel Davies said: “The idea of the map is to raise money for Cylch. With so many people seeking funding in Llangollen we tried to design a product that tourists would be interested in.

“The children at Cylch drew and printed all the main sites around the Llangollen area on A4 paper and Dave Southwell, owner of WTE ased in Cefn Mawr, helped put everything together with his design and printing skills.

“We are so pleased with the results that we want to promote it through the town as much as possible.”

He added: “Anybody can buy the map, we can have large copies made if any local cafes and restaurants want to use up wall space.

“We would love it if it caught the eye of the council and a large permanent copy was erected within the town centre.

“Seeing how hard the staff and children have worked in Cylch Meithrin Llangollen I really hope this map becomes a success.

“Any money made will be reinvested into Cylch to help us become even better. This will ensure that young children of Llangollen will get the opportunity to learn the Welsh language through play.

“We have copyright over the map so it can’t be printed and used by anybody without our permission.”
