๐Ÿงต 1/5 Welsh Twitter hive mind I need your help!

I'm on a quest and I've reached a dead end...

This is my Dad with the Bardic Chair he made for the National Eisteddfod in 1972.

#wales #cymru
2/5 He's turning 70 this year and would love to know where the chair is now, and tell the owners a secret about it that they may not know.

The 1972 chair was won by Parch Dafydd Owen for the poem Preselau. This is him, sitting in the chair. (Doesn't he look like a lovely man?)
3/5 We believe he was from Abersoch originally, and studied at Bangor University, but when he won the chair he was a priest in Brynamman (or Ammanford). (Thank you to the librarians at @NLWales for that piece of info.)

He may have had a son and daughter called Gareth and Sian.

Well exciting news folks! If you live in the Cardiff area something new is coming to town. Something that will hopefully change the dynamic of wine wholesale and retail in Cardiff for the good.
In July @direct_spanish is opening its new store on Penarth Road. This family business has been trading since 2001, and has built up quite a reputation for quality in both the food and wine it sells from Spain. The owners source most of their wares directly from source.
To give you an idea of the reputation, the fabulous @NeilCammies in his last last wine review ever today has selected one of the their wines and trust me Neil save the best for last!

NEW: Every child aged 3-16 in #Wales is going to be offered a free musical instrument as part of the new 'National Music Service'.

It's hoped the plan will help low-income households and those with additional learning needs.

We don't understand why some groups continue to declare #vaccinepassports have been 'seen off' or 'gotten rid of'. Yes, the legal req. is dropped, but here's the reality:

1โƒฃ Domestic COVID-status remains on the #NHS app for a 'limited period'...

We've asked @DHSCgovuk for how long this 'limited period' is. No response yet.

2โƒฃ Domestic COVID-status remains under voluntary use in #England #Scotland #Wales & #NothernIreland after April 1st.

3โƒฃ Certain #NHS trusts continue to request #vaccinepassports from visitors.
Contracts have been awarded by @UKHSA for continued maintaince of the #NHS #COVID19 app as well as ยฃ212m awarded to @SercoGroup for another two years of Test & Trace.

So this remains very much a 'live issue' & we must not be naive about what's going on in the background.

๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ There are around 14 patients in #Wales on ventilated beds with #Covid19, some will be primarily in for other things but have the virus.

There are 50 unoccupied ventilated beds and 157 beds with non-Covid patients.
We have seen a sharp rise in patients with Covid in general beds over the past couple of weeks but the latest estimates indicate that 75% were not in hospital primarily because of the virus, but for other reasons.

Covid may have exacerbated a condition to impact a patient.
A significant proportion of the patients in hospital with Covid-19 caught the virus in hospital.

For the most recent week, it is estimated to be around 264 patients, with a total of 11,095 since the start of the pandemic.

I've tuned into the webinar from @MerchedCymru, @LGBAllies_Cymru and @WomensRightsNet on #RSE #RSEWales

Scene being set... Huge challenges with sexual harassment in schools as per @EstynHMI report and @WelshGovernment's RSE code fails to tackle these.
Stephanie Davies Arai @cwknews speaking first.
Children being exposed to porn and gender identity ideology online and in life.
Link being made between toxic messages girls receiving and deciding to opt-out of becoming women.
Change of language has happened. GIRES presenting gender identity as innate.
Now looking at resources for teens eg. Gender Identity Workbook for Teens, 'Gender Quest' Workbook, all encouraging kids to interpret their lives through gender lens (likes, hobbies etc).
Good grief.

With just under two weeks until our portfolio tasting, being held st London Paddington Stn Novotel, here is a little snap shot of whatโ€™s on offer. If your a wine trade professional you really donโ€™t want to miss out.
First up is the lovely #Champagne from De St Gall. They only make 1er and Grand Cru wines, and with ownership of over 900 ha within the region they are the go to Champagne producer.
Moving to #Wales we have @montgomery_vy and their fabulous range of still and sparkling wines. Their wines are so popular that the demand is out stripping supply. With larger vineyards on the way this is a must have U.K. made product for the very best wine merchants.

Looking forward to being part of the @SBCityDeal showcase event this morning at the Parc Y Scarlet's stadium in #llanelli here on behalf of @WalesCoOpCentre @socialbizwales & the wider social enterprise sector in #Wales
Later this morning we are hosting a panel discussion @SBCityDeal on #socialvalue and how it relates to economic regeneration and the foundational economy. Chaired by @MarySherwood101 Director of @FairerFutureOrg Live updates to follow on this thread...
All set-up for the #socialvalue session. Feels strange to be back running #FaceToFace events.

Here is the #Covid19 round up for Wednesday. All the facts which matter in one handy thread.

Starting with the recently published #UK figures which show a surprisingly large fall in cases, bucking the recent trend of smaller reductions...
Wednesday is usually the day with the highest newly reported #Covid19 cases in the #UK, but numbers are down today, indeed by 27%.

However, I believe it's probably a blip and we may see higher numbers tomorrow and/or Friday.

But Covid deaths continue to fall. From 199 to 164
Looking at new #Covid19 cases by country within the #UK, good to see Scotland falling again.

#England 29,703 (-30.5%)
#NIreland 2,294 (-20.6%)
#Scotland 6,756 (-9.3%)
#Wales 903(-19.7%)

Tuesday's #Covid19 thread starts here. The arguments still raging in the #UK about "Living with Covid" following the announcement from the govt. that infected people no need to isolate from Thursday.

All the important data and news updated in this thread throughout the day
However I am commentating on tennis again today; 3 matches, long day.

I do try to reply all your queries but @SimonCalder here answers many that I'm repeatedly asked, using his judgement on the regular Q "when will xxxxland drop testing requirements?"โ€ฆ
#UK's figures today show another slowdown in the falling numbers with only 6.6% fewer new #Covid19 cases than at this time last week.

And big differences in the different countries:
#England 30,080 (-17.5%)
#NIreland 2,951 (-1.2%)
#Scotland 6,427 (+10.7%)
#Wales 1,672 (+81%)

Another very late start for the daily #Covid19 thread.
I have been keeping an eye on things in among my tennis commentary from the Qatar Open tennis.
The only story in the #UK is confirmation of an end to self isolation requirement from Thursday.

Free testing will end on 1 April
#Covid19 cases in Scotland are UP today while the slowing of falling numbers continues in the rest of the #UK

The nationwide fall is only 7.8% with 38,409 registered new infections.

#England 29,753 (-6.9%)
#NIreland 2,235 (-9.3%)
#Scotland 5,307 (+3.7%)
#Wales 1,114 (-47%)
The rest of the day's #Covid19 stats of interest later. Need to get home, eat, follow Ukraine story.
My friends and colleagues there are getting very nervous now.

BREAKING: Every 18 year old leaving care in #Wales will be offered ยฃ1,600 a month over 2 years under the basic income pilot. ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ

It's believed to be the highest amount offered on a scheme of its kind *ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD*.
It'll start later this year and around 500 people are expected to be eligible for the plan.

The basic income pilot could cost up to ยฃ20m over 3 years.

More Info:โ€ฆ
Critics say basic income doesn't have the expected outcomes and the money should be spent elsewhere - on the NHS etc.

Those in favour say it could reduce poverty and be easier and less stressful to navigate than more complex means-tested benefits.

As you can see from the figures Welsh child admissions doubled in 4 months since the return to schools.

Of the 16 young 0-9 that needed critical care 13 were in those 4 months.

๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ The reduction in #Covid19 cases in Wales in recent weeks has stopped and around 34.5% of the tests carried out are coming back positive.

โžก๏ธ Cases have less relevance now though and patients in ventilated beds are down to their lowest point since August (see thread) Image
There are now over twice as many empty ventilated hospital beds in Wales as there are patients with Covid in them. Image
60% of the patients in general hospital beds with #Covid19 in Wales are not in because of it and many would have caught it in hospital.

@PublicHealthW Transparency is a mark of integrity.
Every nation in the UK provides Child Covid Admission data and deaths yet PHW appears to withhold these until an FOI is issued. Please can we have the data on the dashboard as standard ?
