Yr Urdd Banner, Horeb Branch, Bangor Area, 1932

Made by the donor’s grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Williams, later Thomas in the 1920s or early 1930s. She was once headmistress at Bwlchgwyn primary school near Wrexham where she met David Thomas, a conscientious objector who had moved to Wrexham to work as a farm labourer during the First World War. They got married and moved to Bangor.

David was a superintendent and Elizabeth a teacher at the Horeb Wesleyan chapel Sunday school in Bangor. David expressed concern when the number of children attending Sunday school fell under a 100 and this indicates the size of the school. There was an early Urdd branch run through the Sunday school.
