The oldest generation still speak Welsh at home and the Welsh chapel still attracts the faithful on Sundays. Eisteddfods (the Welsh festival of arts) are held three times a year where recitals of Latin American poetry combine with Welsh knitting competitions and performances by the four Welsh choirs.
