Thanks for the information.
I signed the petition.
I have friends who attend that meeting.
I am not sure if I can attend any of the listed events (due health),but do appreciate all things
that are wheelchair accessible.
(I noticed a lot of the Wales photos
had steps, and one photo had some of my "peeps", called "new friends",
wheelchair users, outside, with
chorus behind.
The Wales pics triggered thinking of the novels by
Reginald Hill, in particular the one where his private detective,
Joe Sixsmith, goes with his English
choir to Wales for a singing contest of choruses. All the books
feature his detecting and his choir activity.)
