We have created an online petition opposing the plan to build a bypass from Llanddewi Velfrey to Redstone Cross, please consider signing it and sharing it.
During the current crisis we will be holding virtual meetings online using Zoom.
I am sure we are now all becoming familiar with the new technology.
And may be it is a chance for those who are unable to travel to join us.
Please email and we can send you an invitation.
