The Brecon Beacons national park is dropping its English language name and scrapping its logo of a fiery greenhouse gas-emitting beacon, and it has sent the people you would expect into orbit!
The Welsh Conservative shadow minister for Mid-Wales James Evans said: “I am concerned that the whole rebranding exercise by the national park is not a priority for the people and the businesses who live in the park. Many of the residents in the area will also be wondering how much the rebranding exercise is going to cost.”
However, the Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Jane Dodds said: “Other countries like New Zealand see the use of their indigenous languages such as Māori as not only key to protecting their history and culture, but also as a key marketing tool. There is no reason we shouldn’t be doing so in Wales.”
Plaid Cymru’s spokesperson for the Welsh language, Heledd Fychan, said: “This decision by the national park is a positive step in normalising the use of Welsh.
“In reclaiming our original Welsh names, we can reclaim our heritage, which is vital if we want our language to continue to play a role in Wales’s future.”
