We have clubs across the county, all of them of a similar nature. They are run through the medium of Welsh, providing Welsh language activities for the children who attend. Every club apart from Gartholwg is open for two hours a day. Gartholwg afterschool club is open for 2 and half hours a day as it is registered. Through our afterschool clubs we employ up to 40 members of staff every week giving them the opportunity to work through the medium of Welsh and to develop a Welsh language career.
