JULY, 1910. LLANDUDNO CHURCH EXTENSION MOVEMENT. A meeting? of the subscribers of the Llandudno Churcih Extension Scheme was held in the Church Hbuset, Holy Trinity on Thursday evening last,. in order to consider the important subject of the election of an architect to carry out the first portion of the scheme, which is the erection of a new church on the West Shore. The Hector presided, and the meeting was a most en¬ thusiastic one, the object being one in which much interest was taken. After letters had been read from many of the subscribers, who were unable to be present, including Lord Mostyn, Lady Augusta Mostyn, Col. the Hon. Henry Mostyn, Mrs Pilkington, and others, the subject of the election of architect was considered at great length in all its bear¬ ings, and it was finally resolved by a con¬ siderable majority, to invite architects to send in competitive designs; the competi¬ tion to be limited to architects who have practised for not less than five years as fully qualified architects in North Wales, or in the City of Chester. A sub-committee was formed to make arrangements for the com¬ petition and to secure the services of an architect of distinction to act as assessor in whom the competing architects would have complete confidence. * * * LLANDUDNO CHURCH EXTENSION SALE OE WORK AT LANSDOWNE HOUSE SCHOOL. All friends of the Church will be glad to know that there was a large attendance in the garden of Lansdowne House School, on Saturday last, the 18th of last month, when Mrs Broome opened the Fete and Sale of Work, which had been arranged by the Principals (Miss Haw and Miss Bennett) with the assistance of the teaching staff and scholars, to raise a sum towards the erection of the new church on the West Shore, Which is part of the scheme of Ghuroh Extension to meet the growing needs of the parish of Llandudno. The tastefully decorated stalls had been neatly arranged around the lawn, and the pro¬ gramme also included a series of enter¬ tainments given by the mistresses and scholars. The Rector, before asking Mrs Broome to declare the Sale of Work open, re¬ ferred to the pleasure it gave him to be present that day to meet them all and thank them for the work they had under¬ taken. The bazaar was organised by Miss Raw and Miss Bennett entirely upon their own initiative, and without even a sug¬ gestion from the clergy, and he thanked them, the assistant mistresses and the pupils for the work they had done so readily, and hoped that as a result of their efforts a substantial sum would be raised towards the erection of the Church at West Llandudno. Llandudno was a growing town, and nothing could stop its progress and it was their aim and duty to provide for the religious needs of the people. He was glad to see they had with them that day so distinguished a church¬ man from the other side of the Channel as the Dean of Kildare, and he offered him a hearty welcome to Llandudno.—(Hear, hear.) He now had great pleasure in ask¬ ing Mrs Broome, who had for a long period taken a very deep interest in Church work at Llandudno, to declare the Sale of Work open.—(Applause.) Mrs Broome, who met with a hearty reception, expressed a hope that the bazaar would be a great success. It gave her great pleasure to be present that day to fulfil so pleasant a duty.—(Applause.) The Dean of Kildare, who is stay¬ ing in Llandudno for a short holi¬ day) proposed a vote of thanks to Mrs Broome, and in doing so commended the effort to provide for the needs of the town. He had had considerable exper¬ ience of Church extension work in Ire¬ land, and had the pleasure of restoring a Church that had been derelict for over two centuries.—(Applause.') The vote, having been seconded by the Rev. E. Lumley, was carried with acclamation. The character of the work was such that it commanded a ready sale. Particular mention should be made of the examples of woodwork which filled one stall. The
