We need your help!


We have a very URGENT petition that we would like you to sign. It only takes a minute and it's so important to us.

Here is the link, Please click. The petition is called 'Install traffic calming measures at our sanctuary, NOW!'.


Some of you may know that the sanctuary is in 2 halves as there is a single track lane that goes through it. This lane is 60mph! We manage the car park to the best of our ability but we cannot control speeding vehicles coming through.

We have campaigned and done petitions over the last 25 years but Powys Council don't see a problem. We recently had a meeting with GoSafe, Dyfed Powys Police, Chief of Staff to Fay Jones MP and 3 council workers. From this meeting, the council decided that the road does not qualify for any 'traffic calming' and that we would need a meeting with a different council worker.

Iain, Chief of Staff to Fay Jones MP, wrote to this council worker and they have point blank refused a meeting. We have the full backing of Dyfed Powys Police and GoSafe.

Iain and Fay have both written on 3/4 occasions now to Lee Waters MS (The man who has campaigned for 20mph in Wales) to help us with the lane. As yet, he has still not responded and this is why we have had to start a petition.


We want visitors to feel safe when they're here and it is a shame that Powys Council do not feel the same.


Please sign NOW.


We really appreciate your support. Thank you.
