An area of land near the centre of Llanidloes, is being leased by the Trust for the purpose of saving two buildings and setting up a community project in the heart of the town.
The Chapel and Hall – substantial buildings on the land – are both in need of renovation and conversion. So far the roof has been patched to prevent further damage in the short term and the buildings are being gradually cleared of all their rubbish.
The Trust had a consultation for local groups and people at the Minerva Centre in January 2019 . Thank you so much to everyone who came – it was such an amazing turn out! It was exciting to have some great contribution to the history of the buildings and some links with other projects around the country that are working well and we can learn from. So many great ideas for the future. The results are being collated by PAVO and will be published in due course. Meanwhile we still want to hear from anyone with great ideas – and there will be lots of opportunities for consultation as the project unfolds. We specifically want to engage with young people and parents at the beginning of February through consultation at the high school. We are also happy to come and talk to any local groups.
