Future of Welsh language discussed in Aberystwyth

A conference of Welsh-speaking communities is being held in Aberystwyth to discuss how they can work better together to encourage people to use the language.

The 2011 Census found there are now fewer communities where 70% of the population speak the language.

BBC Radio Wales reporter Rob Thomas went to Llanrwst, a traditionally Welsh-speaking town in Gwynedd, to ask people there if they would always start a conversation in Welsh.

Then the Aberystwyth event organiser Menna Machreth spoke to Peter Johnson on Good Morning Wales.
