Friends in Action

 


“Greener” Friends

editor : November 6, 2018 11:31 am : FriendsInAction

St. Tudno’s has very limited catering facilities (power points and one cold tap!) so hot drinks after services or other events had been served in disposable cups. We were concerned about single-use materials so the Friends have donated some colorful, unbreakable, stacking cups which can easily be taken home for washing. They are seen in use here after the October service.

The theme of the walk was industrial archaeology and the walk was led by Nick Challinor of the Great Orme Exploration Society. Despite heavy rain we examined some sites and learnt about copper mining in Bronze Age and Victorian times.

About two dozen people took part in the Friends’ Pilgrimage, including some visitors to Llandudno, and Pilgrim Prayers were said along the way.
