editor : October 17, 2016 5:24 pm : FriendsInAction

The Friends of St. Tudno’s autumn working party was held on Saturday 15 October. The day started with heavy rain but this didn’t stop the church being cleaned or the benches put away.  As the sun came out it was possible to start other jobs in the churchyard such as clearing rubbish, raking and removing cut grass – and enjoying a hot drink and a cake!
