Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn - Isle of Anglesey County Council

Welsh Language Rights Day: 7 December 2022

All this week we are celebrating your right to use Welsh by raising awareness of our Welsh language services.

This is because Wednesday, 7 December is Welsh Language Rights Day.

On this date, the Welsh Language Measure was passed by the Senedd. The measure gave the Welsh language official status and established rights to use Welsh with public organisations, including the Isle of Anglesey County Council.

With us you have the right to:

  • receive letters and emails in Welsh
  • chat to us in Welsh on the phone or face to face
  • see the Welsh language on signs, documents and on our websites
  • apply for a job in Welsh
  • if you are an employee, use Welsh at work

We are celebrating the day this year by raising awareness of the orange ‘iaith gwaith’ or work Welsh apostrophe. You will find it at our receptions, on emails, and we encourage all of our Welsh-speaking staff, as well as learners, to wear it.

Wherever you see the orange apostrophe use your right to use Welsh with us.
