Dear Supporter,
Appeal for Donations and Notice of an Action Meeting

Happy New Year! We are writing to let you know what the ‘Hub’ has done so far and the challenge ahead to protect Llandaff Fields from privatisation.

Representatives from the Peoples’ Hub are meeting senior Council officers on January 23 to present our business plan to them. To persuade them we have a good case we have sought professional advice which does not come free. We need to raise over £1,000 immediately and hope you will be generous enough to help the ‘Hub’ meet this target.

We are suggesting a donation of £10 [or more if you wish]. When we set up a membership system this amount will cover your annual membership fee. The easiest way is to click on the link below which will enable you to put your donation into the ‘Hub’ bank account by ‘pay pal’

If you prefer cheque payment, please make it out to:  Llandaff Fields Peoples’ Hub. Make sure you put your name on the back of it and you can leave it in an envelope at Bant a la Cart, on Cathedral Road, or Café Castan at the Llandaff Fields Turning Circle.

If you would like to get more actively involved in the project do come to our open meeting on Tuesday 21st January, 7 pm, Llandaff Rugby Club House, Western Avenue

Best wishes,
Iona Gordon – On behalf of Llandaff Fields Peoples’ Hub Steeering Group
