Editors' Note: Edition 9

(June 07, 2011)

Welcome to the ninth edition of cylchgrawn Cymru Culture magazine.  
A warm welcome to Leanne Wood AC/AM, who joins us as a columnist for Cymru Culture. Leanne, Assembly Member for South Wales Central, has written the first of her regular columns on Welsh politics, which she calls Bae watch; happily coinciding with the Senedd's new law-making powers.

Bespoke tailor and designer, Timothy Everest, gives us the lowdown on the road from Haverfordwest to the East End of London, via Savile Row, Tommy Nutter and M&S. He may have a globetrotting lifestyle, mixing with the rich and megafamous, but there's no place like home for this proud Welshman.

Dave Snowden's column focusses on a dismal year for Welsh rugby, and the return of Wales' prodigal son, Gavin Henson, to the fold. Dave also reminisces about watching his first game of rugby; Penarth v the Barbarians. We're not surprised he was hooked.
