More than 18,000 people – including Yoko Ono – are backing a campaign to save the ‘bombed out church’ from being handed over to a private company.
They mobilised over the weekend in response to the news the council was in talks with a local business that was looking to take on St Luke’s for weddings. St Luke’s Church at the bottom of Leece Street is currently owned by the council, which says it is struggling to afford the cost of maintaining it. But the news it could end up in private hands caused uproar, with more than 18,000 people signing on an online petition between Friday and last night.
