This may be of interest to you, Stan. I saw this rather nice image on Flickr of the interior of Holy Trinity done by a chap called Jeff Morgan (Elm Studio):

Certainly is Dave. We did a restoration project on the stained glass windows in 2006 - I don't know whether this pic was taken before or after, no matter because it looks rather splendid anyway.

Gwen Robinson would be proud of her floral arrangement, she has been "doing the flowers" for quite a few years now. The altar arrangements at Christmas time were always provided by the late Betty Foulkes. Betty died on Christmas night 2008 - sadly missed.

A photograph sent to me by a Dutch visitor. It was taken on a Friday evening and I am tempted to add a caption saying "ONLY THE BELLRINGERS ARE AT HOME"

Excellent!


On an associated point, Trinity Players presented seven charities with cheques for £100 each last week.

Stan, you've reminded me that, for anyone walking on the Orme, a visit to St Tudnos is well worthwhile -  there is some splendid stained glass inside:

Reading that page, I was pleased to see that you are 75% of the way towards reaching the £10,000 target.  ££$

Yes I think £10k is the cost of the slates but the total cost is about £60k, and Cadw have declined another grant application. :rage:

£60K  equates to £50 each from 1,200 people. At £1 per week it would only take one year to raise the cash.  ;)

First find the 1,200 people which out of a local population of 30,000 shouldn't be that difficult  Cash can also be raised in other ways, it just depends on the commitment and determination of those who are interested.   D)

Oh that it could be as easy as you suggest Yorkie!

Raising money for a Church roof is a difficult task but in this case it should be easier because St Tudno's Church is Llandudno's earliest, is listed and of historic interest, but that did not influence Cadw so why should it persuade anyone else.

Nevertheless if anyone wishes to donate £50 I am sure the fundraising committee would be delighted to hear from them.
