Petition on Change - UPDATED

UPDATE - according to Lleuwen Steffan on Facebook (shared by @nia.llywelyn) the auction has now been postponed - not a permanent solution, but enough for now, and good news.

There is a church in Powys being put up for auction; although now de consecrated, it was formerly the place where the hymnist Ann Griffiths was baptized, married, worshipped - and in the churchyard of which she lies buried.

A petition has been started on to ask the diocese to stop the auction in order to allow enough time for a national campaign to raise funds to preserve it, rather than having it converted into flats, or whatever else might happen to it.

The link is below, if you want to sign.

Yes indeed, good news all around, and if anyone is interested - slight short notice, there is one space left ( a shared room for a female) on the Live Welsh Week in April where we’ll get the opportunity to hear the wonderful Lleuwen Steffan sing. :tada:
