Nodyn – Mae’r wefan hon yn wleidyddol ddi-duedd, felly dydw i ddim yn cynnwys gwleidyddiaeth. Dydw i ddim yn creu rhestr o weithgareddau oherwydd nad oes gennyf ddigon o adnodd i wneud rhestrau cynhwysfawr o’r cannoedd o weithgareddau nodedig sydd yn digwydd o gwmpas Cymru bob wythnos…

Note – this website is politically impartial, and so I’m not including politics. I’m not creating a list of events because I don’t have enough resource to make comprehensive listings of the hundreds of remarkable events that happen around Wales each week…
