Harvest Festival at St. Tudno’s, Sunday 6 October 2019

The date of St. Tudno’s Harvest Festival clashed with Wales Rally GB’s stage around Marine Drive, below the church. The service was therefore relocated to the Rectory. A collection of tins and packets of food was taken for Hope Restored, a charity helping the homeless in Llandudno.

Russell Watson at St. Tudno’s, 15 September 2019

St. Tudno’s was delighted to welcome Russell Watson, James Leggate and a film crew who were recording a conversation between Russell and James. Look out for this on BBC’s “Songs of Praise” in late October or early November. It was a great pleasure to meet all the team and show everyone around the church before the recording began.

Update: the programme was aired on 2 November and available on BBC iPlayer for 4 weeks afterwards.

It’s Your Neighbourhood award for St. Tudno’s, September 2019

Congratulations to the Friends of St. Tudno’s for a “Thriving” award in the RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood scheme. The churchyard is managed to encourage wildlife and a highlight this year was a large population of cinnabar moth caterpillars. The photographs show some of the wildlife spotted during late summer.

Congratulations to the Holy Trinity Troughs Team for an “Advancing” award in the RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood scheme. This is an excellent achievement for a new group and the assessor commented on how the flower troughs enhance the church area, making this a lovely space for the whole community to enjoy. The photographs below give some recent views of the troughs and church grounds.

Kylie’s Visit

What a pleasure to be able to arrange something so simple during our weekly practice but which meant so much to one local lady.Kylie had a tough time as a youngster after being diagnosed with a serious illness but this day (16 August) was the anniversary of her being clear. Thirty years ago a bell was not rung to mark such a landmark but tonight she achieved her ambition and did ring a bell at Holy Trinity.

It was wonderful to see the smile on Kylie’s face and we were delighted to help Kylie to achieve her quest to ring a bell. It was also good that some of her relations and friends came along to witness the moment.

Kylie, we all at Holy Trinity bell tower, wish you well in the future.

Stan Whittaker, Tower Captain
