    Welshpool U3A

      Earlier today I had the great pleasure of sharing the story of our family’s restoration journey here at Christ Church to a large audience of 85 members of Welshpool’s U3A. The feedback was wonderful with many comments of admiration and gratitude for our efforts to restore one of Welshpool’s landmark buildings. Many thanks to Welshpool U3A for having me!
