The Beasley's - fundraising to create heritage centre

There’s a campaign to raise enough funding to buy and create a heritage centre of the former home of the Beasley’s, pioneers in the struggle for the language who, over a period of 8 years, refused to pay the rate demands in English which they received from the local council, saying they’d only pay if they received a rate demand in Welsh. As a result, they were taken to court 16 times with bailiffs taking away their furniture for sale to pay the outstanding bills. You can read the story here on Wikipedia

If any of you would like to contribute to fund, here’s the link:


Thank you for sharing! An important campaign, and great people.


Thanks for sharing the link. I read about the campaign in the Lingo360 e-newsletter and made a donation.
