Despite promising to maintain its policy that new housing estates would be
named in Welsh, Anglesey County Council have allowed a new estate to be
baptised with a monoglot English name, in Gwalchmai of all places! An
advert for the estate appeared in today's North Wales Chronicle. "Hawk's
Wing Rise" is its name, and its houses are being sold for 280,000 each by
Propertypark, 22 High Street, Menai Bridge.
