YesCymru Rally – Talacre

On Saturday June 11th 2022 several local YesCymru groups gathered on the beach at Talacre to raise awareness of the campaign to devolve the Crown Estate.  This was part of a weekend of similar ‘Banners on Beaches’ events throughout Wales organised by YesCymru.

At present, profits from the Crown Estate in Wales go to the UK Treasury, which then gives 25% to the monarchy.  This has been devolved in Scotland, so the profits there go to the Scottish government, but Westminster has rejected requests for the same thing to happen in Wales.  YesCymru is a campaign group for Welsh independence, and having control of the profits from Welsh resources would help to prove that Wales is big enough and rich enough to be an independent nation.

More details are available in this Nation.Cymru article, which includes one of my photos of the event:

2022-06-12 Run

Had a wonderful early morning run today; a mixture of road and trail.

Saw a jay, a kestrel, a buzzard flew from a tree just 3 metres in front of me, then perched again as I ran past and wished her a ‘bore da’, and only one human (a rather nasty one, literally screaming at her dog for not behaving completely obediently).

And I thought of the Byron line (paraphrased) “I love not humans the less, but Nature more.”
