Yarn bombing at St. Mary’s Church Brecon

The challenge set by Rev Anna Bessant was ‘Come and join us for an Easter celebration in The Parish Church of St Mary, Brecon. From 1.30 on Easter Day. Free family fun. All are welcome, Welsh cakes and hot drinks provided! Come and make Pom Poms to add to our Easter yarn-bombing of the tower!’

in addition HBTSR wanted to link this to our ongoing #togetherWithRefugees campaign by the addition of some orange hearts and in the display inside the church cafe to explain why  the orange heart is used. Basically it’s a symbol of welcome and hope , linking to both the colour of the refugee flag and that of a life belt . Also within the church is a display of work from Llangors school about Sanctuary











Margaret, Penny, Carola, Michael and Richard helped by making hearts and putting up the bunting and telling people about our group and our concerns about recent legislation.























Pom Poms were made and interspersed with some orange hearts. People were encouraged to write messages onto the hearts.Our orange bunting was placed onto the railings and information is available near to the lovely display of children’s work about Sanctuary.

The storms after Easter don’t seem to have damaged the Pompoms or the heart shaped bunting  Within  the church is a popular cafe that has a display of local school work on the theme of sanctuary and details about the orange hearts campaign.
