Top tips for saving money

If you need to buy a new fridge, cooker, camera, printer, light bulb, phone and more, how will you know whether the model you're buying is better than the others? Are you getting value for money?

Visit Wrexham Library to read a 'Which?' report about the product you wish to buy and select a model based on the results of extensive tests. It's a good place to start and you could save yourself pounds.

Welsh book review

Safana gan Jerry Hunter

Safana by Jerry Hunter

Safana by Jerry Hunter

Pan fu farw mam Grasi, cafodd y ferch fach o dras Affricanaidd ei chroesawu yng nghartref y Methodist George Whitfield ar gyrion Safana. Buan y gwelwyd ei bod hi'n rhyfeddol o alluog, a thyfodd i fod yn ferch ifanc ddewr, yn barod i wneud gwaith peryglus I wneud yn siwr fod Georgia'n parhau'n dir rhydd. Wrth i'r gefnogaeth i'r drefn gaeth gryfhau, rhaid iddi hi a phawb sy'n gwasanaethu cyngor cyfrinachol Safana fod yn barod i weithredu yn erbyn pobol fel Whitfield ei hun er mwyn rhywystro bwystfil caethwasiaeth.
