We remain on Lockdown here at Rhosygilwen and currently we have very little idea when we might be able to stage our next event. However we've launched two competitions for aspiring writers on the theme of Loving the Earth.

Have a go at our SHORT STORY competition by clicking on this LINK. We also have a Poetry Competition!

There are good prizes and winners will be announced in the summer.

We will be watching government guidance closely for a timeline for coming out of the lockdown. As soon as we have a clearer idea of when it might be safe to hold events under social distancing criteria we will get back in touch. In the meantime stay safe and let's support the NHS and all the Health workers. It is our plan to hold the first event in support of them.

Best wishes from us all at Rhosygilwen.

Free access to digital records at The National Archives 



An update from our Chief Executive and Keeper

As you MAY be aware, several weeks ago we closed our Kew site to visitors. Since then we have been working hard to ensure that you can continue to experience and research our collections and services from the safety of your home.

With that in mind, I'm very pleased to tell you that we are now providing free access to our digital records available on our website for as long as we remain closed to visitors. Registered users* can now order and download up to 10 items at a time, up to a maximum of 50 items over a rolling 30-day period. The limits are there to help ensure the availability of our digital services for everyone - you can read more about the service, including details of what's available to download, on our website.

I would very much like to thank you for your ongoing support and loyalty to The National Archives, as we maintain and preserve the public records for generations to come.

With very best wishes,

Jeff James

Books and Reading / Try a Book by A.P.Herbert[

Try a Book by A.P.Herbert

Browned off you say, and blue
There's not enough to do?
Well - try a book.

Books do not wake the child,
Or make the neighbours wild -
Books do not bark or bite,
Or need a walk at night.
So - try a book.

No tax, no licence fee
No valves or battery.
A book needs no repair,
A book is always there.
Best friend, a book.

You worry or you weep
Your sick and can not sleep,
Well - Try a book.
