Welsh in Switzerland

Dear All,

Have been back to Wales and would be interested in getting in touch with more Welsh people in Switzerland. I have set up a facebook page.
https://www.facebook.com/Welsh-in-Sw...2225605645891/

So if you are Welsh, like the Welsh or know someone who is Welsh in Switzerland, please like the page or share the link.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Claire

Re: Welsh in Switzerland

Nooooo not me. Was, is, she a Scots lass as well? I take it you are from Wales originally, or are you English with a love of Wales? I went there a couple of times as a child, very pretty place I remember.

Is that the same as Llanfairpwllgwyngyll on the beautiful morning following, but preceding "butt".

Re: Welsh in Switzerland

Roughly 20% of the Swiss population are "Welsch". You should have plenty of company.
