THE MAYOR of Carmarthen is calling on the people of Wales to sing the country’s National anthem on St David’s Day.
With the Six Nations being played behind closed doors, many of us will be singing along from our sofas before the game against England on Saturday.
But now, the Mayor of Wales’ oldest town wants the anthem to ring out on St David’s Day, Monday, March 1.
Cllr Gareth John, Mayor of Carmarthen, is urging people across Wales to stand on their doorstep, in their garden, farmyard or wherever they are at mid-day to sing the anthem.
It’s to celebrate St David’s Day, officially the first day of spring,” he said. “But it’s also a gesture of defiance that we’re coming through this pandemic, and a song of thanks to all our brave and dedicated key workers for their fantastic work.”
“Let it be a clear sign that this Land of Song will not be silenced. Those few Welsh people who can’t sing can play the anthem on a mobile device. After all, in our unbiased opinion, it is the best anthem in the world!”
