The Society was formed following consultations with a group of Welsh people across Oxfordshire and beyond; people from various walks of life, interests and age groups. This `steering group` was unanimous in encouraging the formation of, and promising their support for a society with the Aims and Objectives noted on the Home Page.
Many were aware that there had, historically, been similar organisations in Oxfordshire namely the Oxford Welsh Society, the Oxford Welsh Exiles and the Abingdon Welsh Society. All have been disbanded for many years, and we are pleased that our new Society has in its membership, representatives of those bygone organisations. Our Hiraith knows no boundaries!
