A MEETING is to be held at Knucklas, near Knighton, on Saturday, October 12, will launch the search for a permanent home for a stone carving marking the Brexit campaign.

A poem called ‘BREXIT’ was born on the morning of June 24, 2016, out of a raw emotional response to the EU referendum result. The poem does not take any side but hints at something disturbing.

Subsequently, ‘Carving through Borders’, a stone-carving student collective from Shropshire and Mid Wales, chiselled the prophetic words into a slab of Cambrian sandstone by way of articulating protest.

The stone stands nearly six foot high and, coming in at nearly a quarter ton, is a weighty epitaph to UK stability and prospects for our continued peaceful existence.

Now this Stone needs a home where it can be seen freely by as many people as possible so that it can continue to give voice to the ongoing debate. It is there to give the message that we are better together than apart.

The October 12 Brexit Stone launch runs from noon to 3pm, at Carving Through Borders, Upper House, Knucklas, Knighton, Powys, LD7 1PN. Drinks, nibbles, and throat pastilles will be available. Contact via www.carvingthroughborders.eu for further information.

Carving through Borders comprises Lottie O’Leary of Knucklas, Rachael Davenhill of Knowbury, Ludlow; and Keri Evans and Martin Evans of Cwmrheidol, Aberystwyth. Visit the https://carvingthroughborders.eu/ website or watch video at https://tinyurl.com/brexitstone
