Welsh surfer and ocean activist Laura Truelove recently helped lead a beach clean with nearly 70 children and teachers from a Swansea school – and staff from A Rocha UK’s partner St Madoc Centre, Llanmadoc.
Kathryn Britton of Keep Wales Tidy also assisted with the two-hour clean-up. This marine task force gathered more than 30 bags of rubbish from one of these islands’ most spectacular shorelines.
‘Among the rubbish, there were all sorts from glass and plastic bottles to lighters, fisherman’s rope, cotton bud sticks, and even the odd shoe,’ said Laura (pictured), a representative for Surfers Against Sewage.
One of the world’s greatest cathedrals has proven it’s green – not grim – up north. Located on one of the most significant Christian sites in Europe, York Minster has scooped a new environmental award.
Constantine was proclaimed Emperor while visiting the city in the fourth century. And now in the 21st century, A Rocha UK Chair Steve Hughes has proclaimed York Minster an Eco Church Bronze Award winner!
Steve presented the honour to York Minster at their main service on Easter Sunday – hot on the heels of St Paul’s Cathedral receiving their Eco Church Bronze award in January. Nearly 2,000 worshippers heard about the scheme and how York Minster took part.
