Less is More for Ely residents

Mark was on hand to celebrate with Ely residents as they were handed a cheque for nearly £4,000 for their energy saving efforts, as part of a landmark energy saving pilot project, which was promoted locally as “Less is More Ely”. The residents have now voted to invest the cash in energy-saving devices to benefit the local community. The Welsh Government-funded Communities First group Action in Caerau and Ely (ACE) organised for around 300 households in Ely to take part in the year-long Western Power Distribution pilot project which involved residents making small changes to their energy consumption habits to reduce electricity usage during peak hours and bank the money saved.  See the report on ITV.   Read more [...]

Welsh Government makes the switch to gov.wales

The Welsh Government has become the latest of a series of high-profile Welsh organisations to switch over to the .wales and .cymru domains. The National Assembly for Wales was the first to switch, so please note that Mark and his staff will change their email addresses to @assembly.wales / @cynulliad.cymru.

Web addresses of the main website www.wales.gov.uk and www.cymru.gov.uk  have now changed to www.gov.wales and www.llyw.cymru. Changes to other Welsh Government sites, such as Learning Wales, CADW and Hwb, will follow.

The old and new addresses will continue to work side by side for a time, but visitors to the main Welsh Government site should update their links and bookmarks with the new addresses.

Organisations who have already moved over to the new domains include, Sport Wales, Media Wales, the National Assembly for Wales and the Millennium Stadium.

The new domains aim to create a strong online presence for Wales, as well as strengthening Wales’s global identity.

Mae cyfeiriadau’r brif wefan, sef www.cymru.gov.uk a www.wales.gov.uk wedi newid i www.llyw.cymru a www.gov.wales Bydd gwefannau eraill Llywodraeth Cymru, fel Dysgu Cymru, CADW a Hwb, yn cael eu newid maes o law. Bydd y cyfeiriadau hen a newydd yn gweithio ochr yn ochr am gyfnod, ond bydd yn rhaid i ymwelwyr â phrif safle Llywodraeth Cymru ddiweddaru eu dolenni a’u nodau dalen. Mae’r sefydliadau sydd eisoes wedi symud i’r parthau newydd yn cynnwys Chwaraeon Cymru, Media Wales, Cynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru a Stadiwm y Mileniwm. Nod y parthau newydd yw rhoi presenoldeb cryf ar-lein i Gymru, yn ogystal â chryfhau hunaniaeth fyd-eang Cymru. Read more [...]
