Embracing our Welsh rootsAt Peter Alan we count ourselves very lucky.
This because we sell homes in Wales. We are a Welsh company and always have been. Ever since we were founded in 1956 we have been proud to sell homes in Wales.
This is not just because we are Welsh ourselves, but because Wales is, simply, a wonderful place to buy a home and build a life. With stunning natural beauty, warm friendly people and rich sporting/artistic traditions it a fantastic place in which to work.
We are deeply proud that we employ so many people in Wales and are always looking to engage with out Welsh roots. This doesn’t mean just paying lip service and nothing demonstrates our drive to engage with Welsh culture more than our new Welsh language provision.
We recently received a letter from a retired translator who pointed out that we do not offer any Welsh language options on our signage or website. In the letter she said: “Welsh speaking young professionals are continually moving to Cardiff from other parts of Wales. The rapid growth in demand for bilingual education and the addition of new Welsh medium schools means that a new generation of young people will grow up looking recognition for their native language. This is in addition to the large number of Welsh speakers who have lived in Cardiff for many years.”
Quite frankly, we couldn’t have agreed with her more. That is why we are proud to be launching a dual language option on our website as well as dual language For Sale/ To Let boards and Welsh window cards.
We know we have a long way to go yet but are truly proud to have made these first baby steps and to be making more announcements in the future.
